(From the publisher):
Neil Ingleby, a well-meaning modern man on a sabbatical from his newspaper, is swept, through indecision and a fatal desire to do good, into the white-hot violence of French North Africa. An innocent intellectual, he believes the British canons of reason and fair play can apply in this stew of assassination, casual sex and ice-cold drinks. Trapped between ruthless men like Pohl, the obese and scented Barbouze, the scholarly fanatic Colonel Broussard and Ali la Joconda, the terrorist leader with the frozen smile, Ingleby fails, dramatically - and horribly.
