http://nhw.livejournal.com/767689.html[return][return]A more serious effort by Durrell here than his collection of humorous diplomatic stories which also drew on his time in Belgrade. The cover describes it as being in the genre of John Buchan but in fact I think it's pretty obvious that Durrell was trying to cash in on the James Bond phenomenon (Casino Royale was published two years earlier, in 1953, and Live and Let Die in 1954) by bringing his British secret agent hero to untangle murky doing...more

Not Durrell at his best, but the combination of Durrell and the Balkans is always interesting. Sort of a poor fictionalised version of Eastern Approaches - but not really.
A "quieter" thriller than those of today: lovely writing, suspenseful, dated of course but that's why I am reading it. I hauled out a road map of Bosnia and followed him along on his excursions.
Picked it up in a second hand bookshop a I liked the cover, turned out to be quite a good read.
A good old fashioned spy romp over the mountains, well written.
Interesting but not entirely successful adventure for children and young adults. perhaps I ought to re-read it sometime.
Good adventure, British spy story set in Serbia during WWII. Read during Jess marriage.
Straightforward cold wall spy story. short satisfying read.
