Rogue Male by Geoffrey Household

Book Description

1930-something: a professional hunter is passing through an unnamed Central European country that is in the thrall of a vicious dictator. The hunter wonders whether he can penetrate undetected into the dictator s private compound. He does. He has the potential target in his sites and is wondering whether to pull the trigger when security catches up with him. Imprisoned, tortured, doomed to a painful death, the hunter makes an extraordinary and harrowing escape, fleeing through enemy territory to the safety of his native England. But that safety is delusive: his pursuers will not be diverted from their revenge by national borders; the British government cannot protect him without seeming to endorse his deed. The hunter must flee society, and he goes literaly underground, like a fox to its earth. The hunter has become the hunted. Geoffrey Household s "Rogue Male" is a classic thriller and a triumph of suspense. Described by Household as a bastard offspring of Stevenson and Conrad, the book is no less remarkable as an exploration of the lure of violence, the psychology of survivalism, and the call of the wild."
