Returning to his hotel room after a late-night flirtation with a cabaret dancer at an Istanbul b™ite, Graham is surprised by an intruder with a gun. What follows is a nightmare of intrigue for the English armaments engineer as he makes his way home aboard an Italian freighter. Among the passengers are a couple of Nazi assassins intent on preventing his returning to England with plans for a Turkish defense system, the seductive cabaret dancer and her manager husband, and a number of surprising allies. Thrilling, intense, and masterfully plotted, Journey Into Fear is a classic suspense tale from one of the founders of the genre.

3.0 Journey into Fear

I haven't read much Eric Ambler, and what I have read was many years ago. Reminds me of Agatha Christie's style of writing. Actually not bad though, for a book set early in WWII (around 1940 or so). Not keep you on the edge of your seat suspense, but enough to keep it interesting.
