Penguin twentieth-century classics
In a small continental country civil war was raging. D. was once a lecturer in medieval French, but the war has made him first a prisoner, then a widower and finally a confidental agent: a scarred stranger in a seemingly casual Britain. His mission is to buy coal at any price; initially it appears to be a straightforward matter of negotiation.
Implicated in murder, accused of possessing false documents, of theft, and held partially responsible for the death of a young woman, D. becomes a hunted man, tormented by personal allegiances, doubts and the love of others.
