J. Eugene Raxford, chairman of the pacifist organisation Citizens Independence Union (CIU), believes passionately in his cause, despite the recent loss of the majority of the Union’s members. Harassed by the FBI, who have mistaken him for a terrorist, Eugene finds himself unwittingly drawn into a sinister organisation, desperately trying to prove to the FBI he is not who they think he is. Set in the aftermath of the Korean War, this surprisingly comic novel is one of Westlake’s early classics.
