After years on the run, an assassin seeks vengeance against the Nazis It’s been four years since Raymond Ingelram failed to kill Hitler. All it took was a slight change in wind to force his bullet wide and put the entire German secret service on his tail. Ingelram ran to England, where he went to ground in the wilds of Dorset and finally escaped his pursuers. Safe at last, he does the only thing that makes sense: He decides to go back to Germany. War is raging across Europe, and Hitler deserves death more than ever. Infiltrating the Reich with a forged passport, Ingelram is thrown into a provincial prison—only to be freed by a stray RAF bomb. Wearing a stolen Nazi uniform, he again goes to ground . . . and forms a plan to tear Nazi Germany apart from the inside out.

1930-something: a professional hunter is passing through an unnamed Central European country that is in the thrall of a vicious dictator. The hunter wonders whether he can penetrate undetected into the dictator’s private compound. He does. He has the potential target in his sites and is wondering whether to pull the trigger when security catches up with him. Imprisoned, tortured, doomed to a painful death, the hunter makes an extraordinary and harrowing escape, fleeing through enemy territory to the safety of his native England. But that safety is delusive: his pursuers will not be diverted from their revenge by national borders; the British government cannot protect him without seeming to endorse his deed. The hunter must flee society, and he goes literaly underground, like a fox to its earth. The hunter has become the hunted. Geoffrey Household’s Rogue Male is a classic thriller and a triumph of suspense. Described by Household as a “bastard offspring of Stevenson and Conrad,” the book is no less remarkable as an exploration of the lure of violence, the psychology of survivalism, and the call of the wild.
