Product description


The thinking person s John Le Carré --Tribune

His annual political-spy thriller is now as much of a must-read as the annual Dick Francis in his heyday ... It is a good yarn, with lots of twists, accurate depictions of MI6 officers, and a real sense of Berlin and London at the time. It is as good a spy thriller as will be published this year ... intellectually commanding, but also has a mordant wit and poignancy --Independent

A glorious, seething broth of historical fact and old-fashioned spy story --The Times

About the Author

Born in Baltimore and now based in Suffolk, Edward Wilson is a highly acclaimed writer whose novels focus on espionage and the Cold War. Winning praise from the TLS as well as the Mail on Sunday, Wilson is a master of ambiguity who creates likable villains and detestable heroes. He uses his background as a scholar, soldier, and cosmopolitan expatriate to create authentic settings and verifiable plots.
