Elements of enigma and excitement for the story of Giles Gordon, blinded by a war injury, as he goes to France to evade solicitude and the helping hand which would bruise his pride. There he is attracted to Alix, a war widow, who is also involved with a dubious operator, Pierre Grognard. Finding Grognard's body, Gordon is to shadowbox with the disbelief of Benat, a lawyer, with the disappearance of Alix, the suspicion of some black market activity, and with no proof at hand- he returns to England where an operation restores his vision. Back in France again, he finds Alix- bettered in circumstances if changed by them, establishes her relationship with Benat which blocks her love for him, but at the close is able to free her from the past, from Benat, and take her with him to England. Escape entertainment which is just as attractive as it is accomplished. (Kirkus Reviews)Book Description:
Giles Gordon lives in a world which he can only see in varying degrees of darkness. Unable to cross a room with confidence, Gordon has the courage to walk into dangers that a fit man would fear to face... In his own search for peace at teh end of the Second World War, Gordon has retreated to the French Riviera. But his love for the beautiful Alix, widow of a French Resistance hero leads him into a year of violence and murder far worse than anything he has dealt with before. 'The incomparable Winston Graham... who has everything that anyone else has, then a whole lot more' Guardian
