From the cover: “In a cafe in Dubrovnik on the coast of Yugoslavia, Zarko, Chief of Police, watched the crowds as they drank and talked. The two Englishmen at a table on his left — quiet, well-dressed, unobtrusive — interested him especially ; and a girl singing beside the piano, tall and fair-haired. There was always a forest of watchful eyes in this country; a country where even the well-meaning foreigner might find himself involved in a desperate, concealed struggle. But as yet Robert Hudson, drinking his beer in the cafe, did not realise this.”
