Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Charles Thoroughgood is now boss of MI6. Fans will welcome him back, newcomers will get more out of this with a bit of background knowledge but it is not strictly necessary for the enjoyment of this tale. It is classic spy writing, very much in John Le Carré’s area only with more technical sophistication for this involves computer and phone hacking. It also involves the kidnapping of Charles’ wife Sarah who works for a London law firm and lurking in the background there are some Russians too and a dramatic showdown as a classic ending. Brilliant stuff, highly recommended.

If you like Alan Judd you might also like to read books by Charles Cumming, Alan Furst and John le Carre.

Synopsis

Inside Enemy by Alan Judd

From the author of Legacy, now a major BBC Film, comes a brilliant new novel for fans of le Carre, Graham Greene and Charles Cumming. Charles Thoroughgood is now the recently-appointed chief of a reconstituted MI6, tasked with halting the increasingly disruptive cyber attacks on Britain, which are threatening government itself and all the normal transactions of daily life - not to mention a missing nuclear missile-carrying submarine. The murder of one of Thoroughgood's former agents and the escape from prison of a former colleague turned traitor, whom Charles helped convict, brings danger on all sides.Thoroughgood ploughs a lonely furrow in Whitehall in his belief that all these elements are connected, a theory which dramatically gains credibility when his wife, Sarah, disappears.
