First published as "Deadline", as this story of the early 1950's unfolds, we learn of the great love affair that brought him to his island. Both that ancient love and the indissoluble bonds between Jones and the deposed Emir are caught up by the old man's professional deamon. We follow Jones, move by move, playing his endgame with the fragments of physical and mental powers still vouchsafed him. "The Man Who Knew Everything" is not a tragedy: though it contains pain and tragedy, this finely wrought and moving novel tells of a life redeemed by the commitment of its protagonist to his metier.
