In "The Tightrope Men", Desmond Bagley has written a well-crafted spy thriller. His narrative is to-the-point with a good balance between action and descriptive segues.

I have to admit when I first ran across the title, Tightrope Men, I was expecting something like a criminal gang of circus performers robbing a bank or maybe a spy cell made up of a high wire act that had to break into an enemy fortress. Let me just save you the annoyance of trying to figure out the title. It really has nothing to do with the plot and is explained only in the last few pages of the book.
The Tightrope Men is a novel written by English author Desmond Bagley, and was first published in 1973. Giles Denison's life is turned upside down when he awakes to find himself in a luxurious hotel.

Obviously that there were two Meyricks; one who had booked in on June 18, and another – himself – who had just been planted. Never mind why and never mind how. Just accept the fact that it was done.
He dropped a cigarette stub on the floor and put his foot on it. ‘We’ll wait,’ said McCready. He nodded to Denison. Check the windows-see if there’s anyone out there. Denison went to the window. All was quiet and nothing moved except water ripples in the distance and the reeds which swayed stiffly in the light breeze. Here, too,’ said Harding, who was at the back window. Not a thing stirring on the mountain. I think you’re trying to pull a fast one,’ said McCready. It would be a hell of a joke if there was just one man out there.
