    Arthur Simpson is a petty thief who is discovered stealing from a hotel room. His victim, however, turns out to be a criminal in a league well above his own and Simpson is blackmailed into smuggling arms into Turkey for use in a major jewel robbery. The Turkish police, however, discover the arms and he is further 'blackmailed' by them into spying on the 'gang' - or rot in a Turkish jail. However, agreeing to help brings even worse danger...

    Eric Ambler reprises his greatest character, Arthur Abdel Simpson from Light of Day (aka Topkapi), in an entirely new adventure set in the heart of Africa. Simpson, anti-hero and general cad is up against it again - 'it' being the injustice of life in general. Passport shopping, responsibility-avoiding, and general dodginess ensue. Another great yarn from master thriller writer Eric Ambler whom Graham Greene noted was "unquestionably our best thriller writer".
