This time, the naive everyman/anti-hero getting in trouble IS the greasy foreigner--Arthur Simpson, the bumbling, cowardly, delightfully immoral protagonist of Ambler's earlier book THE LIGHT OF DAY.

Ambler αποκλειστικά από τον αριστουργηματικό αλλά σκοτεινό "Η μάσκα του Δημητρίου" θα εκπλαγούν ευχάριστα από αυτήν την απολαυστική περιπέτεια.More bitter than the first Arthur Abdel Simpson novel, The Light of Day, this second book extends Simpson's story and has him become an unfortunate soldier of fortune in Africa. For Arthur Dent, who has only just had his house demolished that morning, this seems already to be more than he can cope with.

It is about a small-time international hustler type who gets caught up with a bunch of white mercenaries in Africa.New and familiar characters abound, voiced by a bright mix of performers, including Kat Dennings, Regé-Jean Page, Emma Corrin, Michael Sheen, Kristen Schaal, Brian Cox, John Lithgow, Jeffrey Wright, and so many more, including fan-favorite narrators Simon Vance and Ray Porter.
