Robert Carey was a spy who had defected to Russia. When the news leaked out that he had changed sides again a ruthless manhunt was on from the glamour of Paris to the violent and scorched wastelands of West Africa. There is Fat Rossland who doesn't recognise trouble when it sits on his lap; Girland, a dissatisfied agent who is greedy for money - and women; Janine Daulnay who fatally plays the ends against the middle; Radnitz, the sinister tycoon and Malik, the blonde Russian with whom Girland tangles in a lethal battle of wits. Striking a new note with the back-ground to this action-packed novel of espionage, James Hadley Chase upholds his reputation for compulsive readability.
