A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.
A Charles Thoroughgood spy thriller, authoritative, action-packed and, as ever, all-too topical. The second volume in the series, Legacy, is soon to be on TV and will surely bring much needed attention to an undervalued spy series by an author who is still better known for his automotive adventures and journalistic background. Detailing an unsteady collaboration between MI5 and MI6 when a protest group linked to a major political party is planning acts of terrorism and sabotage which connects with a Cold War case in Charles' own past. Elegant writing, an urbane and imperfect spook in the driving seat whom we have begun to know well over the series as he ages and matures like fine wine, and an unsettling attention to political realities, past and present, on a par with Le Carre, Charles Cumming and other ingenious experts of the genre make this a good read indeed. ~ Maxim Jakubowski
