Opening, literally, with a cliffhanger, Household's classic thriller plunges you into a exhilarating game of cat and mouse as a would-be assassin is chased across 1930s Europe.
In the opening pages of Rogue Male the narrator is thrown off the edge of a precipice and is clinging on by the fingertips. He survives the fall and struggles through a muddy stream before climbing a tree, there to hide from the uniformed figures searching below. It transpires that he has just tried to assassinate the leader of an unnamed country with a hunting rifle. What follows is a fast-paced cat-and-mouse chase across Europe as the hero struggles to evade the authorities and carry out his mission – ’to do justice where no other hand could reach’.
