KIRKUS REVIEW

The way to the sun is out of Tripolitania during World War II when Basil Ferguson, a British cartoonist with the map section of the War Office, is retrieved by Mattei, a gunrunner, and both together are joined in their escape by Lorena (with funds provided by her husband's willing mistress). Basil goes to his death, Mattei to his freedom, and Lorena to , in what is a small but tight action sputtering all the way. As for the tone (the translation is from the French) it's expressionlessly expressive with that kind of macho romanticism which makes an unintentional hero out of an innocent participant. A fast arrivederci.
