Twelve compelling, accomplished and varied tales from a master of classic fiction.

Beginning on the Equator with the shimmering, mountainous coastline of Peru to starboard and the setting sun on the horizon, these brilliant and varied stories transport the reader to Spain, to the Andes foothills, to the pantries of London and the streets of New York.

Geoffrey Household, master of the spy novel and author of acclaimed classic Rogue Male, demonstrates his pure skill as a storyteller in each brilliant tale – whether it’s a sketch, a character study or a longer, gripping narrative.

Stories include, among others, Delilah of the Back Stairs, Estancia la Embajada, Taboo, Technique and Women on Wheels.
