The Mask of Dimitrios by Eric Ambler This is the September 1944 Sixth Impression in the scarce (damaged) dust-jacket After a slightly false start ("The Dark Frontier" in 1936, a little too arch), Eric Ambler went on to write five classic thrillers before the outbreak of the Second World War: "Uncommon Danger" (1937), "Epitaph for a Spy" (1938), "Cause for Alarm" (1938), "The Mask of Dimitrios" (1939) and "Journey into Fear" (1940). Of these, his undisputed masterpiece is "The Mask of Dimitrios". "Our greatest thriller writer . . ." (Graham Greene) "A Frenchman named Chamfort, who should have known better, once said that chance was a nickname for Providence . . . For a moment Latimer had an uncomfortable suspicion that although the man across the desk appeared to be looking at his tie, he was actually looking into his mind. Then the Colonel's eyes moved upwards and he grinned slightly in a way that made Latimer feel as if he had been caught stealing something. He said : "I wonder if you are interested in real murderers, Mr Latimer."
