Escaping from the hospital, he finds that everyone expects him to do something. And clearly. A grand job of suspense, well handled angles on a series-detective, current war and romance as Albert Campion, suffering from concussion, pieces together bits of his identity and the problem on which he is working for the government. The reader is just as much in the dark as Campion, which is fair sleuthing, but this is really more active adventure-thriller than orthodox detecting, as Campion.
