9780141190303: Journey Into Fear (Penguin Modern Classics)

It is 1940 and Mr Graham, a quietly-spoken engineer and arms expert, has just finished high-level talks with the Turkish government. And now somebody wants him dead. The previous night three shots were fired at him as he stepped into his hotel room, so, terrified, he escapes in secret on a passenger steamer from Istanbul. As he journeys home - alongside, among others, an entrancing French dancer, an unkempt trader, a mysterious German doctor and a small, brutal man in a crumpled suit - he enters a nightmarish world where friend and foe are indistinguishable. Graham can try to run, but he may not be able to hide for much longer ...

From the Inside Flap:

Returning to his hotel room after a late-night flirtation with a cabaret dancer at an Istanbul b(TM)ite, Graham is surprised by an intruder with a gun. What follows is a nightmare of intrigue for the English armaments engineer as he makes his way home aboard an Italian freighter. Among the passengers are a couple of Nazi assassins intent on preventing his returning to England with plans for a Turkish defense system, the seductive cabaret dancer and her manager husband, and a number of surprising allies. Thrilling, intense, and masterfully plotted, Journey Into Fear is a classic suspense tale from one of the founders of the genre.

From the Back Cover:

“One of the best stories of international intrigue you’ll ever find.” --The New Yorker

“Told with great narrative skill. . . . This book will not be easily forgotten.” --The New York Times Book Review

“Confirms Ambler’s reputation as the foremost thriller writer of our time.” --Time
