Publication: MS Mill Co & Wm Morrow Co, 1962, New York
First U.S. edition. Fine in dust jacket. Author first brought us Harry's Game, and a succession of other fine espionage thrillers. Now the setting is Northern Ireland, and a young British agent is asked to become involved in a small mountain village where the villagers don't collaborate with the British in any way, for fear of a death sentence from their own people. Yet an informer is there and the brigade will go to any length to find, interrogate, and kill him.
