OK, I finally found an Eric Ambler novel that wasn't up to his standards. I know I'm in disagreement with other reviewers, I had hoped his final work would have been better. What starts out with an interesting idea of a bomb in the mail, spirals almost out of control. It becomes wordy in extreme. By the time all the introductions and background to what's going on is dealt with, I found myself finishing it only because I told myself I'd read all of his novels. Maybe the next one I read will be better

5.0 su 5 stelle Ambler's Care of Time 12 maggio 2002
Di Robert A. Watson - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
This novel, by the author of thrillers admired as the classics of the genre by Graham Greene and Alfred Hitchcock, concerns a journalist's encounter with an anonymous international shaker& mover who has fallen from favor with the probably insane Arab ruler he is presently serving. If you would like to read a novel which has all that you need to understand international terrorism, this is it. If you would like to read another which makes clear Arab-Palestinian terrorism especially, read Ambler's earlier novel, The Levanter.
5.0 su 5 stelle Timeless classic 22 giugno 2014
Di Alfred J. Kwak - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle
The last of 18 thrillers and spy books by Eric Ambler (1909-1998; EA), active in WW II , author of many screenplays and said to have inspired Len Deighton, John Le Carré and Robert Ludlum. Was twice awarded the coveted Golden Dagger for best thriller of the year. His works have recently been reprinted.
This 1981 novel is written in the I-form by the survivor of a spying operation, Robert Halliday (RH). He is a former foreign and war correspondent in the Middle East, now a sought-after ghost writer for the rich and famous. RH is lured into new territory via a bomb threat and a picture of the Mansour Hotel in Baghdad, where he was held years ago for nine months by Iraqi security. The sender of the bomb (it does arrive) and the picture, correctly assumes RH feels he has a score to settle in Iraq.
The book gathers pace very slowly because of all the technicalities raised by RH in the first half. He is asked to write a book based on two manuscripts: a shady MS by a 19th century Russian anarchist, the other still unwritten, dealing with future acts of world-wide terrorism. His source person on this also sent him the bomb and postcard. He is a secretive trader in intelligence called Zander. His and Robert’s life will be in ever present danger: a rich Gulf person or ruler has put a price of USD 20m on Zander’s head to prevent him from disclosing to Robert what he knows… I leave the outcome to readers.
Over time Ambler develops his lead character Robert from a pedantic person obsessed by contract technicalities into a real flesh and blood man.
Ambler has written a timeless novel by not mentioning brand names, types of cars or airplanes. Well-structured and –paced and written in a precise style. Deserves to be read again.
5.0 su 5 stelle Shifty levants in Mitteleuropa. 24 novembre 2016
Di e r morris - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
Ambler in his end game but still at the top of his game. A thriller much nearer to modern times than Eric's heartland - and much further West as well. Firmly set in Mitteleuropa at the height of the Cold War, Eric brings the Levant into geo-politics. Excellent on the practicals of violence - what do you do when your car is being pursued by uzi-wielding thugs? - Eric leaves lesser thriller writers sprawling in the dust of his tire tracks.

3.0 su 5 stelle Ross Thomas fans will enjoy this modern Ambler offering. 11 febbraio 2008
Di Michael G. - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida
This latter day Eric Ambler novel vividly demonstrates the author's ability to keep up with the times. It's impossible to discern just from reading The Care of Time that Ambler had been writing espionage themed books for the prior 50 years. What's more, though written more than a quarter century ago, the subject matter, Mideast terrorism, is probably even more relevant now than it was then.

The storyline revolves around the book's narrator Robert Halliday, ghostwriter and minor television personality. Halliday is an American who once spent time in an Iraqi jail. He has a healthy skepticism when it comes to government in general and intelligence services in particular. So it comes as a shock when he is enlisted to serve as a middleman between Western intelligence and an eccentric Arab potentate.

Byzantine plotting, worthy of Ross Thomas at his most outlandish, characterizes this deftly written novel of intrigue. Most of the action takes place in Italy and Austria but the fascinating cast of characters come from far and wide.

Recommended to readers who enjoy international thrillers with an abundance of bizarre plot twists.
