Making Good Again, first published in 1968, was Lionel Davidson's fourth novel.
The principal character, James Raison, is a lawyer. In Germany to deal with a claim for reparation he is plunged into the old conflict between Jew and Nazi.
His trip becomes more dangerous as the legal aspects of the case become more complicated.
At the same time he has to cope with his affair with Elke and his fascination for her fascist mother, Magda. As with all Lionel Davidson's novels it was showered with praise on publication.
The Sunday Times called it 'a classical thriller told with much subtlety' and the Evening Standard 'part thriller, part morality - and doubly successful'.
