Publisher's Summary

Under Western Eyes, Conrad's novel of political treachery and oppression, begins with a bomb that kills a hated Russian minister of police along with innocent bystanders. A young student named Razumov hides the perpetrator, then betrays him and becomes a spy among his exiled comrades. He faces a moral dilemma from which there is no escape.

This masterwork, published six years before the Russian Revolution, is a chillingly accurate prophecy of what was to come.

Perfect narrator, great story

George Guidall does a brilliant job of this psychological thriller. A genuine classic, reminded me of Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment. Great insight into someone who is put into an impossible situation, unwillingly dragged into a terrorist act in tsarist Russia. Conrad is a great story-teller.
