Written in 1939 by Geoffrey Household it was rumoured to be based on actual events.

The storyline
The protagonist, an unnamed British sportsman, sets out to see whether he can stalk and prepare to shoot a European dictator. Supposedly interested only in the hunt for its own sake, he convinces himself that he does not intend to pull the trigger.
He is caught in his stalk by the dictator's SS guards and tortured, but, on the verge of being put to death, he manages to escape. After making his way covertly back to England, he realizes that he is still being hunted and eventually is forced, literally, to go underground. During the time he spends holed up in his "hide", he ponders on his predicament and confesses to himself that he would have "pulled the trigger", as punishment for the earlier execution of the love of his life by the fascist regime. He has to use all his wit and guile to turn the tables on his pursuers and escape from their clutches.
