Overview

“FURIOUS IN ACTION…TAKES US BY THE NECK ON PAGE ONE AND NEVER LETS GO.”
–Chicago Sun-Times
With the Cold War fought and won, British spymaster Tim Cranmer accepts early retirement to rural England and a new life with his alluring young mistress Emma. But when both Emma and Cranmer’s star double agent and lifelong rival, Larry Pettifer, disappear, Cranmer is suddenly on the run, searching for his brilliant proté gé , desperately eluding his former colleagues, in a frantic journey acros Europe and into the lawless, battered landscapes of Moscow and southern Russia, to save whatever of his life he has left….
“IRRESISTIBLE…A sinuous plot, leisurely introduced, whose coils become increasingly constricting. There is crisp, intelligent dialogue, much of it riding an undercurrent of menace. And there is a hero who does not see himself as heroic but who struggles with inner demons as much as with the forces arrayed against him.”
–Time
“AS THRILLING AS LE CARRÉ GETS…The novel has the heartstop duplicity of A Perfect Spy and some of the outraged honor of The Night Manager and The Little Drummer Girl.”
–The Boston Globe
“GRIPPING.”
–The Christian Science Monitor
A NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK
