Ambler, Eric - Epitaph for a Spy

Josef Vadassy is the type you wouldn't notice in an empty room. A shy teacher of languages, his life is just a steady, gray stream. Until one day he arrives at a French hotel filled with holiday tourists, is arrested for a crime he hasn't yet committed, and begins his life in the icy undercurrents of international espionage.

"Ambler towers above his newer imitators!" (Los Angeles Times)
