Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Gerald Seymour is a master thriller writer, most famous for Harry’s Game, whose classic books are being reissued to excite a new generation. When the Cold War ended it left a huge gap in thriller writing possibilities which Seymour nicely works around in this end of the Cold War masterpiece. Viktor Archenko, a high ranking Soviet naval officer has been passing secrets to MI6 for four years when suddenly the information stops. His handlers know he’s in trouble and the time has come to get him out but the political situation has changed and things aren’t as cut and dried as they used to be. Full of flashbacks to the Cold War’s height and with plenty of cute references to his earlier work that will delight Seymour’s die-hard fans this is a master thriller writer at the very top of his game.

If you like Gerald Seymour you might also like to read books by Sam Bourne, Christopher Reich and Frederick Forsyth.

Synopsis

Traitor's Kiss by Gerald Seymour

An English trawler strays into Russian waters. When it returns, the captain has a package to deliver to British intelligence. For the next four years a high-ranked Russian naval officer, Viktor Archenko, passes valuable information to MI6. Suddenly the flow of information stops. His contacts in London know nothing about him - but they know that he's under suspicion. The time has come to get him out. But the new breed now playing the spy game have no interest in irrelevant Cold War sparring or the risk of a scandal. There are deals to be done, alliances to be made. They would rather leave Archenko to fend for himself. Only one veteran agent realises that there is much more at stake than one man's life. Only he dares ask the question: if the war is over, who will fight the peace?

Reviews
