I enjoyed that one a while back under a previous cover. I've picked up Background to Danger at Borders recently and ordered Epitaph for a Spy and Passage of Arms (along with George P. Pelecanos's "Shoedog" which is also available in trade size and at a noncollectable price ... I saw a copy of "Shoedog" for $250 at Bourchercon for a used library bound edition) from has more of Eric Ambler's books from the new releases and some older ones than those available in the US ... Epitaph for a Spy will release in the US according to on February 5. But ordering from is as easy as ordering from, so there's not a lot of reason to wait if you like Ambler's work.
