Synopsis: Eric Ambler is a master of narrative and an elder statesman of suspense. He virtually created the modern spy story with his ground-breaking series of pre-WWII novels; A Coffin for Dimitrios and Journey into Fear are hailed as classics of the form. Waiting for Orders is the first volume to collect Mr. Ambler’s shorter works, most of which date from the period of his greatest literary triumphs.
