The Mask of Dimitrios (Charles Latimer #1) (1939)

The Mask of Dimitrios (Charles Latimer #1) (1939)
by Eric Ambler

A writer of detective fiction becomes fascinated by the sketchy details surrounding the life of a real criminal and decides to learn the truth for himself as a professional, intellectual exercise. 

He will learn far more than he bargained for. 

Though it builds slowly, lacking a real sense of danger for much of its length, Eric Ambler's fine writing and deft character work held my interest, as did his abilities as a guide through Europe on the eve of World War II.
