This is one of the best Dennis Wheatley books I have yet read along with the amazing 'Forbidden Territory'. Set over a single weekend, it is the tale of a Czech born Britisch proffesor struggling to escape a communist ruled Czechoslovakia. As one would expect of a Wheatley novel, it is exciting and fast paced- at some points it was difficult to put down. This book could have been 5 stars had it not had such an abrupt ending that was a slight let down after what had been a brilliant story.
