A celebrated writer by the time war broke out in 1914, Maugham has the perfect cover for living in Switzerlan d. Multilingual and knowledgeable about many european countries, he was despatched by the Secret Service to Lucerne - under the guise of completing a play . An assignment whose danger and drama appealed both to his sense of romance and the ridiculous. The stories collected in ASHENDEN are rooted in Maugham's own experiences as an agent, reflecting the ruthlessness and brutality of espionage, its intrigue and treachery, as well as absurdity.
