Product description

Review

‘We are in Smiley country, but with extra 21st century nuance … Cumming has an exquisite touch and we should treasure him’ Daily Mail

‘A thriller that has everything you could ask for – a twisty, sexy plot, topical themes, memorable characters and plentiful spy lore’ Sunday Times, Books of the Year

‘Refreshing, plausible and effective … Best of all is the sheer pace of the narrative’ Spectator

‘You are likely to be up for most of the night to find out how this novel ends. It grips from the first page … A fast-moving treat’ The Scotsman

Praise for Charles Cumming:

‘Charles Cumming is a man put on this earth to perpetuate the spy thriller’ Daily Telegraph

‘From the first page to the last it has the ring of absolute authenticity. Tautly written, cleverly plotted…it reminded me strongly of the early books of John le Carré’ Robert Harris

Bang up-to-date and well-written spy thriller' The Sun 'Powerful ****' Mirror 'Don't start this novel close to bedtime: you are likely to be up for most of the night to find out how it ends. It grips the reader's attention from the first page, and there is no skipping paragraphs. Every word matters ... It is all eminently plausible ... A fast-moving treat' The Scotsman 'Refreshing, plausible and effective ... Best of all is the sheer pace of the narrative ... This book is perfect travel reading because, once you've started it, it's not easy to put it down' The Spectator Praise for Charles Cumming: 'From the first page to the last it has the ring of absolute authenticity. Tautly written, cleverly plotted...it reminded me strongly of the early books of John le Carre' Robert Harris
