    One of those interesting spy stories which is written in 1942 and the good thing about it is that it is not a cliche about the cold war It pivots on Nazi activities in a Midlands town in England and how a guy named Humphrey Neyland from department of counter espionage is about to stop them Humphrey has lucid ideas about the society in which he lives and is not a mere playboy playing 007 so no james bond stuff Priestley was a progressive who cared about the society and his hopes for a better world in the post war era is very well reflected in this bed time book Well Churchill sure had good reasons to cancel his broadcasts

    I found this lovely 1942 edition for £3 in a second hand book shop There was something uite magical about reading a book printed in 1942 and set in 1942 it was like a snapshot into history What life was like during the war when it had been going on for three years was getting everyone down no one knew how much longer it would last of if the allies would win There was a great moment when one of the protagonists said that even if they did win it would just be a world split between the US and Russia which is exactly what did happenThe story itself was a little spy story set in the midlands in a small town with rather a lot of espionage due to the munitions factory near by It was short and not terribly mysterious but I still really enjoyed it Definitely one I would recommend I liked it so much I started another Priestly right afterwards

    Another re read This story was written set and published in 1942 It is one of the only two to my knowledge stories by JBP in the crimeespionagethriller genre As it's set in war time England it probably helps to know that JBP served in WWI moving through enlisted ranks on the front line to a commission and was injured In WWII he was one of those trained as Scallywags to be assassins and saboteurs in case the Germans succeeded in landing in the UK The story is slow to start the first 100 would only warrant at best 3 stars but the central character is a Canadian working for the British counter espionage unit He has been sent to a midlands industrial town where it is known that German agents are active Several of JBP's normal character types and settings appear The overt story is very dated naturally but the story in the subtext is as valid today as nearly 80 years ago

    І хоч книга зачитана до дір ще в підліткомому віці деякі твори читала наче вперше Звісно це не стосується Небезпечного повороту чи Дядя Філ і телевізор чи улюбленого Мій дебют в опері але кілька розповідей стали для мене відкриттям Що в принципі чудово

    A tidy little spy story set in a town in the midlands in England during the second world war What can I say it held my attention and I enjoyed the journey

    It surprises me when I discover a new book by an author I know and I'm familiar with Priestley This is an exciting read shades of Buchan's Mr Standfast and Graham Greene's Ministry of Fear A briskly written WWII thriller full of interesting types English settings adventures crisp dialogue Clever set pieces not unlike those in Hitchcock's The 39 Steps Atmosphere that reminds me of Launder Gilliat's Green for Danger I'm halfway through so it may lose some of its snap before the end It includes the familiar prejudices of the time Why have I never heard of it? Why is it out of print? Why wasn't it made into a film?

    Humphrey Neyland a Canadian civil engineer is doing counter espionage work for the British government in the midst of World War II He doesn't have much to live for when he comes to the small industrial town of Gretley where information is leaking to the Germans Among the people he meets are several beautiful women but Neyland is not interested in how beautiful they are just in how suspicious As he wades in to find the mastermind who had one of his contacts killed he also finds that maybe he does have something to live for after all Priestly's strong feelings about the War and about the economic system are clearly expressed


  8. says:

    Priestley subtitled this A story of and for wartime The story centres around and is told in first person by a spy catcher in a small northern industrial town The story is rather downbeat the darkness of the blackout pervading the whole story Although there are some laughs along the way this is all pretty serious by Priestley's standards we really do feel that the Nazi menace can be found almost anywhere
