Product Description

Review

"Enthralling, beguiling and totally addictive from the first page to the last. McEwan's sense of time and place is authentic with his trademark attention to details of the social history of the period" (Bristol Magazine)

"A brilliant portrayal of 1970s Britain at its absolute worst. But it's also a gripping spy novel with some characteristic McEwan twists toward the end" (Mail on Sunday)

"Riveting... Delicious... Gripping" (Guardian)

"Sweet Tooth takes the expectations and tropes of the Cold War thriller and ratchets up the suspense, while turning it into something else... A well-crafted pleasure to read, its smooth prose and slippery intelligence sliding down like cream" (Amanda Craig Independent)

"A thoroughly clever novel...a sublime novel about novels, about writing them and reading them and the spying that goes on in doing both...very impressive...rich and enjoyable" (Lucy Kellaway Financial Times)

Book Description

The Number One bestseller from the author of Atonement and Enduring Love: Sweet Tooth is a story of love and espionage in 1970s Britain

From the Back Cover

'Riveting... Delicious... Gripping' Guardian

The year is 1972. The Cold War is far from over. Britain is being torn apart by industrial unrest and terrorism. Serena Frome, in her final year at Cambridge, is being groomed for MI5.

Serena is sent on a secret mission - Operation Sweet Tooth - which brings her into the world of Tom Haley, a promising young writer. First she loves his stories, then she begins to love the man. Can she maintain the fiction of her undercover life? And who is inventing whom? To answer these questions, Serena must abandon the first rule of espionage - trust no one.

'Sweet Tooth takes the expectations and tropes of the Cold War thriller and ratchets up the suspense, while turning it into something else... A well-crafted pleasure to read, its smooth prose and slippery intelligence sliding down like cream'Independent

'Sublime.impressive.rich and enjoyable' Financial Times

'Gloriously readable and, at times, wickedly funny' Irish Times
