Superb, classic thriller from the CWA Gold Dagger award-winning author of Other Paths to Glory, rated 'alongside Le Carre and Deighton' GUARDIAN

A brilliant young electronics expert is killed by a car bomb seemingly meant for the head of the Foreign Office's Middle-Eastern Section. Intelligence officer Hugh Roskill is sent by David Audley on an investigation that takes him from London clubland to the Hampshire countryside, and deep into the complexities of Middle Eastern politics, to find the answer to two questions: who was the real target of the bomb? And what is Alamut?

Against the backdrop of the Arab-Israeli conflict in the period before the Camp David Accords, Dr Audley and Colonel Butler are confronted with an assassin capable of turning the Middle Eastern conflict into Armageddon.

Praise for The Alamut Ambush

  • He is still rated among connoisseurs of spy fiction alongside Le Carre [and] Deighton ... His storytelling technique and authorial voice were unique. Price novels are unmistakable; and all featured historical backgrounds because Price felt the past was lying in wait for the present - GUARDIAN
