The author: Lyall served in the RAF in the early 1950s, and his first strand of thrillers is usually about pilots (though this particular one isn't):
The Wrong Side of the Sky (1961)
The Most Dangerous Game (1963)
Midnight Plus One (1965)
Shooting Script (1966)
Venus With Pistol (1969)
Blame the Dead (1973)
Judas Country (1975)
his two other 'strands' are on the number Ten SAS adviser Major Maxim; and the 'Honourable' series of four is about the fledgling British spy service at the start pf the 20th century.
My opinion: very very good: well-written, well paced, knowledgeable, and springing sudden tension in unexpected places. The slightly washed-out and self-doubting 'hero' makes this more realistic than many a thriller; this is a tight, well-crafted thriller with a devious plot, of which the strands are only getting clear slowly. One of Lyall's best!

Absolutely marvellous action novel. Lyall was the master of this tongue in cheek, hard boiled genre. Shows its age. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Anthony M. Bennett
Lyall is a top-notch writer and this is one of his best. I first read it in the 60's, and come back to it, as I do to all of his books, on a regular basis. Read morePublished 20 months ago by Dr Maturin
