Rogue Male
An unnamed British sportsman attempts to assassinate Hitler(? - also not named) but is caught, tortured and thrown over a cliff. Surprised to be alive he escapes back to England but is pursued by foreign agents, and, once he has to kill one of the agents on the London Underground, the British police. He hides out in Dorset but is pursued and discovered and during a final siege we discover his real motivation for the assassination attempt.
Pretty good. Exciting chases, and very sneaky hiding.
