A Kind of Anger Summary

A Kind of Anger by Eric Ambler

'A thriller of the highest quality - ironic, witty, literate, ingenious, understated and unflaggingly suspenseful' The New York Times Book Review

The last time anyone saw Lucia Bernardi, she was driving at top speed away from a Swiss villa - leaving the body of her murdered Iraqi lover behind. Now she has vanished, along with a potentially explosive set of papers, and disgraced journalist Piet Maas has been sent to follow her trail to the South of France. But finding her is just the start of his problems. Soon, amid a cast of con men, secret agents and revolutionaries, he must decide whether to land the scoop of his lifetime - or follow Lucia into ever more dangerous waters.
