A prisoner of the German army in France, Richard Temple is nobody's idea of a hero. To stay sane while denying the charges and absorbing the beatings of his captors, he conducts a minute examination of his life.

Temple escaped from a blighted childhood and his alcoholic mother thanks to an artistic gift. But his life as a painter in 1930s London was cruelly deprived. To eat, he became a forger. He was rescued by the love of a wealthy woman, and the failure of that relationship coupled with the outbreak of war propelled him into the world of espionage.

    " Not a maritime novel - got stuck on page 30 or so and haven't picked it up again. "

    " An odd and intriguing book, told almost entirely in flashback as a tortured prisoner in WWII, with freedom near at hand (the war is ending) thinks back along the events that have brought him to this place. Written with slight and bitter humor and stunning powers of observation. "

    " I couldn't get interested in this book because I didn't like the author's writing style. "

    " This book was not the romp through the turn-of-the-century La Vie Boheme that I thought it would be (or that the back cover copy led me to believe). In fact, despite good prose and intentions, it was: Just. Plain. Boring. "
