From award-winning author Alan Judd comes a gripping espionage
novel set during the height of the Cold War. Capturing the tenor of
1970s London with assuredness on par with that of the genre's
greats, Judd has crafted an extraordinary story about a young spy
who discovers some shocking truths about his family.
Fresh out of the army, Charles Thoroughgood has barely begun his
training in Britain's secret intelligence service, MI6, when his
college association with a Soviet diplomat lands him on a case. The
diplomat, Viktor Koslov, has been working in London and is behaving
in ways that may suggest he's turnable. Charlie's higher-ups hope
to exploit Viktor for their own purposes. But when Charlie makes
contact, Viktor reveals certain information about Charlie s family
that he would rather not believe. Charlie soon finds his desire to
learn the truth to be at odds with the goals of MI6. Caught at the
intersection of the professional and the personal, he sets out to
untangle the story within a story--all the while navigating a
dangerous web of crosses and double-crosses that draw him deeper
and deeper into the vortex of the international intelligence
