Winner of the Crime Writers’ Association Gold Dagger Award
 
Syria, 1970. Michael Howell has kept his family’s Middle Eastern business enterprises going through a decade of takeovers, war, and revolution, thanks in part to his office manager, Teresa, who is also his mistress. One late night at the office, they discover men working overtime—producing unauthorized bombs for the Palestine Action Force. Worse, this guerrilla terrorist group is not deterred by their discovery—rather, they will enlist Howell and Teresa’s unwilling help in carrying out their plan.

Industry Reviews

"A classic."--Alan Furst, The Wall Street Journal "[A] complex exploration of power, responsibility, and identity in the modern high-tech world. . . . [Ambler's works are] political novels of a high order." --The Washington Post "A rarity . . . a thriller which compels belief." --The Guardian (London)

"The best book he has written since the war. . . . It's got everything the reader can possibly want . . . beautifully done." --The Observer (London)

"Ambler is, quite simply, the best." --The New Yorker

"Although the Old Master of Intrigue had been writing for more than 35 years when [The Levanter was] first published, he most certainly had not lost his touch."--The New York Times Book Review

"The foremost thriller writer of our time." --Time

"Brilliant. . . . To see [this] ordinary man thrust into an extraordinarily difficult situation and rising to the challenge is one of the most snugly satisfying scenes in fiction." --The New York Times

"Mr. Ambler is a phenomenon!" --Alfred Hitchcock
