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'.

Lionel Davidson was born in 1922 in Hull, Yorkshire. He left school early and worked as a reporter before serving in the Royal Navy during the Second World War. His first novel, The Night of Wenceslas, was published in 1960 to great critical acclaim and drew comparisons to Graham Greene and John le Carre. It was followed by The Rose of Tibet (1962), A Long Way to Shiloh (1966), The Chelsea Murders (1978) and Kolymsky Heights (1994). He was thrice the recipient of the Crime Writers' Association Gold Dagger Award and, in 2001, was awarded the CWA's Cartier Diamond Dagger lifetime achievement award. He died in 2009.
