This is an absolutely brilliant spy story. It is rich in detail, utterly convincing and very, very exciting. Whilst the writing is not as good as John Le Carre, the construction of the plot is on a par with The Spy Who Came in from the Cold and the Smiley/Karla trilogy. A totally fascinating insight into the deadly war of espionage fought between the United States and the Russian Federation. Charles Cumming's review in the New York Times is absolutely spot on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunningly Good, 12 July 2014
Every so often a debut espionage/thriller novel is published which stands out for its originality, authenticity, excitement.....or whatever. Thinking about the debut novels that stand out for me - The Day of the Jackal, Fatherland, Remembrance Day, Lie in the Dark, Los Alamos - they are usually written by journalists. Night Heron is a stunningly good debut. Written by a BBC correspondent, it offers a great insight into the espionage war against China. Exciting, authentic...and, above all else, interesting.

The book sets out the story of the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich in Prague in 1942 and, in doing so, honours the extraordinary bravery of the two assassins and their supporters in the Resistance. It also captures the tragedy of Czecholovakia from 1938 and highlights the abandonment of the country by Britain and France but also the mind of Heydrich. Massive research has gone into the book and the author is sufficiently confident to take on and challenge others… Read more
