Watcher in the Shadows Summary


Watcher in the Shadows by Geoffrey Household

A deadly pursuit through the English countryside from the acclaimed author of ROGUE MALE.

After working as a double agent for the British in Nazi Germany during the war, Charles Dennim is now living a quiet, unassuming life in England. Until the postman delivers a letter bomb to his front door.

Suddenly hunted by a killer with no name and no apparent motive, Dennim must use his wartime skills to stay alive, and the two master hunters embark on a deadly game of cat and mouse through the picturesque English countryside.

With brilliant descriptions of the Cotswolds and a high-stakes manhunt, this is a pursuit novel that stands with Household's best.

About Geoffrey Household


Geoffrey Household (1900-1988)
Geoffrey Household was a prolific novelist of political thrillers and suspense stories, most notably the classic Rogue Male, which, The Times recently declared, 'remains as exciting and probing as ever'. He was as widely travelled as the settings of his books suggest: after graduating from Magdalen College, Oxford, with a first in English literature he worked abroad for 25 years, and served in British Intelligence during World War II in Greece and the Middle East. He married twice and eventually settled in the English countryside with his wife and three children.
