Though he once worked with British Intelligence, Peter Marlow now believes he has left behind the insane world of espionage, and found a haven in the Cotswolds with his wife and step-daughter. But when gunfire shatters the night he realizes his new life of calm is short-lived. As Marlow runs for cover into the nearby woodland, he finds himself in a landscape that has become suddenly venomously hostile. And when sinister vengeance from Africa reaches deep into rural England, he must turn savage to rescue his terrified step-daughter and make good his escape. This is a thrilling 'chase' novel in the tradition of Geoffrey Household's Rogue Male.
Valley of the Fox is the third in the much-praised Peter Marlow series, the others being The Private Sector, The Sixth Directorate and The Flowers of the Forest: all have been reissued in Faber Finds.
