Description: "Robert Henry Carey was a spy who had defected to Russia and when the news leaked out that he had changed sides again, an intensive and ruthless manhunt was on. From the glamour and nerve-shattering noise of Paris, the hunt switches to violent and scorched wastelands of Senegal, West Africa. Striking a new note with the background to this action-packed novel of espionage, James Hadley Chase upholds his reputation for compulsive readability that inspired a reviewer to acclaim him as 'far and away the best writer of thrillers in the English language.'"
