A classic British spy novel from the celebrated author of ROGUE MALE.
A TIME TO KILL is a classic thriller from one of the 20th century's best crime writers.
Roger Taine wants to be left alone to live quietly in the country with his wife and children. But Roland, head of British Intelligence needs his help.
A vicious spy ring has a very simple idea: strategically placed foot-and-mouth disease. One isolated outbreak would spread virulently. Twenty outbreaks at the same time would be uncontrollable. And so two men must fight against time to prevent certain catastrophe. . .
Geoffrey Household was a prolific novelist of political thrillers and suspense stories, most notably the classic ROGUE MALE, which, THE TIMES recently declared, 'remains as exciting and probing as ever'. He was as widely travelled as the settings of his books suggest: after graduating from Magdalen College, Oxford, with a first in English literature he worked abroad for twenty-five years, and served in British Intelligence during World War Two in Greece and the Middle East. He married twice and eventually settled in the English countryside with his wife and three children.
