I first heard this story many years ago when it came out on cassette tape. I was driving across Europe, listeing to this story about an author who traveled across Europe in search of the reasons why in a dead man's life. I still enjoy listening to it today. Mr. Spencer was a good choice to narrate this story. The film, "The Mask of Dimitrios" runs pretty close to the book and I couldn't imagine better actors than Peter Lorre, Sidney Greenstreet and Zachary Scott to play the characters as originally written by the author. Mr. Ambler's descriptions of characters are sympathetic and on the mark. Desparation, frustration, unrequited love and greed are well written. Highly recommended for those who are able to place their imaginations back in the 1930s.
A very interesting trip through the old Europe. A detective spy novel that takes you on a trip. characters well developed, a logical plot, and satisfying ending.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, well written, great story. Narration was top not notch. If you enjoy detective novels this is one I would highly recommend.
