About the Author:

Nevil Shute Norway was born on 17 January 1899 in Ealing, London.After attending the Dragon School and Shrewsbury School, he studied Engineering Science at Balliol College, Oxford. He worked as an aeronautical engineer and published his first novel, Marazan, in 1926. In 1931 he married Frances Mary Heaton and they went on to have two daughters. During the Second World War he joined the Royal Navy Volunteer Reserve where he worked on developing secret weapons. After the war he continued to write and settled in Australia where he lived until his death on 12 January 1960. His most celebrated novels include Pied Piper (1942), No Highway (1948), A Town Like Alice (1950) and On the Beach (1957).

From AudioFile:

The second published novel by the celebrated author of ON THE BEACH is very, very British. The conventional thriller could have been filmed by a young Hitchcock. Driving home one evening, a veteran of the Great War picks up a hitchhiker whom he recognizes as a fellow flying ace. He shelters the basically good chap, who admits to spying for the Soviets. How to reform the bloke, protect him from authorities, and foil the Russians? Stephen Thorne has just the right sound for this tale. He transports us to the age of biplanes, "playing the game," and Etonian rules of decency. Y.R. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
