By Winston Graham
The reluctant spy...
Spying used to be repugnant to Mencken – even in wartime – yet he had no substitute. He took the task. His target used to be to wait a convention of Nazi scientists, researchers in germ conflict and poison fuel, and report to London. He used to be to choose up his orders in Venice.
The nightmare, paranoid international of a undercover agent used to be without notice Mencken's international. He turned a guy break up among self-respect and worry, conditioned by means of terror of the faceless males devoted to his removal. . .
'Winston Graham writes shrewdly, with a chew to his dialogue.'
