Without papers or friends and with a murder on his conscience, he arrives in London where he encounters a group of Canadian and Ameican expatriates, film writers and directors who have left Hollywood rather than betray old friends. They are, in short, refugees from the other side. Among these men, Norman Price is the one on whom Ernst makes the greatest impact. Norman loves a Canadian girl called Sally, and Sally falls in love with Ernst. Uncomplicated jealousy is, however, impossible for Norman because it seems to him that his expatriate friends, victims of political intolerance in America, are treating Ernst with equal intolerance. So he must help the boy, even though the results may be tragic. The story of the love between Ernst and Sally, the political theme and Norman's efforts to come to terms with the limitations of his own nature are closely woven together in a novel rich in diversity of character, locale and plot, with much ironical humour in its observations."
