Rogue Male

The Classic British Thriller

One of the classic thrillers of the 20th century - ´Simply the best escape and pursuit story yet written´ [THE TIMES] - with a brand new Introduction by Robert Macfarlane

An Englishman plans to assassinate the dictator of a European country. But he is foiled at the last moment and falls into the hands of ruthless and inventive torturers. They devise for him an ingenious and diplomatic death but, for once, they bungle the job and he escapes.

But England provides no safety from his pursuers - and the Rogue Male must strip away all the trappings of status and civilization as the hunter becomes a hunted animal.

Rezension
Nail-biting, boldly plotted... A mesmeric climax anticipates post-war existential fiction. By any standards: a masterpiece INDEPENDENT
Portrait

Geoffrey Household (1900-1988)
Geoffrey Household was a prolific novelist of political thrillers and suspense stories, most notably the classic Rogue Male, which, The Times recently declared, ´remains as exciting and probing as ever´. He was as widely travelled as the settings of his books suggest: after graduating from Magdalen College, Oxford, with a first in English literature he worked abroad for 25 years, and served in British Intelligence during World War II in Greece and the Middle East. He married twice and eventually settled in the English countryside with his wife and three children.
