Alistair MacLean's fourth novel is a brilliant, fast-moving and richly authentic Cold War thriller. Originally published in 1959 and now reissued as part of a major repackaging of the key MacLean backlist titles.

About the Author

Alistair MacLean, the son of a Scots minister, was brought up in the Scottish Highlands. In 1941 he joined the Royal Navy. After the war he read English at Glasgow University and became a schoolmaster. The two and a half years he spent aboard a wartime cruiser were to give him the background for HMS Ulysses, his remarkably successful first novel, published in 1955. He is now recognised as one of the outstanding popular writers of the 20th century, the author of 29 worldwide bestsellers, many of which have been filmed.


'Breathless, bloody and detailed.' Daily Telegraph 'Swift-moving, with a tremendous climactic scene on the snow-swept roof of a trans-Hungarian express.' Glasgow Herald
