Reviews

A rip-roaring adventure
FINANCIAL TIMES on Geoffrey Household
Pure Household and beautifully done ... a great read
LOS ANGELES TIMES on Geoffrey Household
Rogue Male ... has achieved deservedly classic status. It's an exciting story, told in a crisp, no-nonsense style reminiscent of John Buchan
MAIL ON SUNDAY on Geoffrey Household
Household ... helped to develop the suspense story into an art form
NEW YORK TIMES on Geoffrey Household
Rogue Male remains as exciting and probing as ever, untouched by the topicality that made it so popular in 1939, and the reason lies as much in its incisive psychology and timeless crispness of language as in its sensational plot
THE TIMES on Geoffrey Household
Household is a storyteller in direct line of descent from Daniel Defoe and Robert Louis Stevenson
NEW YORKER on Geoffrey Household
Rogue Male must forever remain a classic
JOHN GARDNER on Geoffrey Household
A great book about an assassin who's a big game hunter and goes to Europe on the eve of World War II ... It has the best opening page I've ever read and is not nearly as well known as it should be
