A lone man, Peanut, escapes a labour camp in the dead of night,
fleeing across the winter desert of north-west China. Two decades
earlier, he was a spy for the British; now Peanut must disappear on
Beijing's surveillance-blanketed streets. Desperate and ruthless,
he reaches out to his one-time MI6 paymasters via crusading
journalist Philip Mangan, offering military secrets in return for
extraction. But the secrets prove more valuable than Peanut or
Mangan could ever have known...and not only to the British. Uncover
a world of international secrets in the utterly authentic,
unbearably tense opening novel in a landmark thriller trilogy by
BBC Foreign Correspondent Adam Brookes.
