Publication: Hamish Hamilton, 1980, London
First edition. Fine in dust jacket. A dramatic novel about a German spy living in Cairo in 1942. Known as Hussein by some, and to others as Alex Wolff, a European businessman, the spy presented as great a danger to British hopes of containing the German army in North Africa as Rommel himself. A copy of Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca holds the key to his success. Movie version starred Cliff Robertson and Robert Culp.
