A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.
An assured cold war thriller set in the 1950s in paranoiac Washington D.C. at the height of the McCarthy hearings. The CIA suspects they have a mole, known as Protocol in their ranks, leaking secrets to the Soviets and George Mueller, recovering from a broken marriage, is given the task of investigating. However, his own past in the Great Game of espionage is equally murky and ambiguous and he soon comes under suspicion himself as the connections come to light. Past and present crisscross effectively in a tale of treason, mixed loyalties in a tale worthy of Robert Littell, Charles McCarry and with shades of early Le Carre which won't fail to impress spy thriller aficionados who will happily add Vidich to their shelf and look out for the imminent sequel. Most satisfying. ~ Maxim Jakubowski
