Catalogue Note

One of the author's masterpieces and the first modern novel of counter-espionage. F.R. Levis would later describe the book as "indubitably a classic and a masterpiece", noting that the final scene between Adolf and Winnie Verloc was "one of the most astonishing triumphs of genius in fiction".
