KIRKUS REVIEW

Morton Thomas, fortyish, faltering, a non-writing writer at the moment with a failed marriage behind him, finds that he is being followed by two men who attempt to run him down by car and later kill him in the underground. Escaping to Holland, he enjoys a dreamy, domestic interlude with a woman before he is picked up, interrogated interminably, and brainwashed into a hopeless reversal of roles and names....This closes the credibility gap between what might and what does happen and while labeled as ""espionage"" is a more sombre, subdued variant of reasonable competence.
