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. Despite the slightly more acidic taste of the novel, along with its bloodiness, Dirty Story is also more of a comedic success than the earlier story. And that is something of an achievement, because The Light of Day is one of the most appealing comedic thrillers I've yet run across.

Ampler has one more talent as well. His stories constantly advance the plot and keep the story churning. But he's more than a mere action writer. His stories about Simpson carry a clear moral message as well. Or at least they take a look at morality as it was evolving in the late 1950s and 1960s. That is, the established boundaries have given way. Immorality is now a virtue. And so it's disquieting to some that a petty conman, a rogue like Arthur Simpson carries more morality than the exemplars of twentieth century enlightenment, international corporations, newly independent Third World nations, and governments intent on fighting "corruption" and "theft." Arthur does those things--but on a human scale and for reasons of survival. Those on the other side, act out of greed or the sadistic joy of inflicting pain. ( )

Eric Ambler used to be known for well-crafted spy stories and thrillers. This one continues the life and adventures of Arthur Abdel Simpson,a second-rate crook and con-artist living on the edge.
He gets involved with a group of mercenaries in Africa and each move he makes,gets him deeper in the mire.
I throughly enjoyed re-reading this 'blast from the past'.Must try another one soon. ( )
