One of the classic thrillers of the 20th century - 'Simply the best escape and pursuit story yet written' [THE TIMES] - with a brand new Introduction by Robert Macfarlane

An Englishman plans to assassinate the dictator of a European country. But he is foiled at the last moment and falls into the hands of ruthless and inventive torturers. They devise for him an ingenious and diplomatic death but, for once, they bungle the job and he escapes.

But England provides no safety from his pursuers - and the Rogue Male must strip away all the trappings of status and civilization as the hunter becomes a hunted animal.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Nail-biting, boldly plotted... A mesmeric climax anticipates post-war existential fiction. By any standards: a masterpiece * INDEPENDENT *
We are in classic British adventure thriller territory - think Buchan - with an upper-class Englishman showing his stiff upper lip to best effect... A page-turner if ever there was one! * GOOD BOOK GUIDE *
The book... has lost none of its appeal as a tale of survival against the heaviest of odds * DAILY MAIL *
Rogue Male is probably the most famous chase thriller ever, influencing an entire generation from Frederick Forsyth to Lee Child * CATHOLIC HERALD *
This is a completely terrific read, a perfect example of its kind and one we'd recommend to lovers of classic thrillers * EASTERN DAILY PRESS *
