Everything began for Kenton with a game of dice in which left him broke. When a strange little man with a nervous air offered him 600 marks for a small service, he accepted—though against his better judgment. That service involved military secrets which had been stolen from the Russians, and Kenton found himself in the center, a perfect sitting target for both sides.

Recognized as the first classic novel of intrigue, this masterpiece has never been surpassed. Here is the fantastic nightmare world of political intrigue and international espionage. Here is a Europe not of tourists, but of professional spies and professional traitors, where a man’s shadow is hardly ever his own.

Eric Ambler established himself as a writer with five classic novels of intrigue: Background to Danger, Epitaph for a Spy, Cause for Alarm, A Coffin for Dimitrios, and Journey into Fear. During World War II he served in the British Army and was discharged a lieutenant colonel. He wrote and produced a number of motion pictures and was nominated for an Academy Award for his screenplay of Nicholas Monsarrat’s The Cruel Sea. Many critics consider him the father of the spy-espionage thriller novel.
