In this riveting thriller that recalls Alfred Hitchcock in his prime, an innocent European businessman is inadvertently caught up in a murderous web of international intrigue and forced to run, hide, or die in the English countryside A man of considerable ambition, French and British export agent Georges Rivac is always eager to expand his client base, so he agrees without question to do a simple favor for an unknown Englishman. Charged with delivering an item to an address in London, Rivac is surprised to discover that his arrival is unexpected and unappreciated-and he's shocked to learn soon afterward that his new client is dead. Suddenly the confused businessman is himself a target, pursued by unknown assailants and forced to flee the city, taking refuge in the wilds of rural England. Relying on his wits and dormant survival skills, as well as the help of a beautiful Hungarian freedom fighter, Georges Rivac must now somehow get to the root of the deadly international conspiracy that has placed him in a killer's sights. A gripping adventure reminiscent of The 39 Steps and North by Northwest, The Last Two Weeks of Georges Rivac is a thriller in every sense-a masterful novel chock-full of action and intrigue, racing toward its surprising and breathtaking climax.… (more)
