Barry Forshaw on Alan Furst and Anthony Price...
Today, the espionage genre is firmly back in the limelight – and Alan Furst (author of Spies of the Balkans) is one of the genre’s most highly regarded authors, with the kind of solidity of characterisation and narrative reach that distinguished the best writers of the past. Such writers, in fact, as the British giant Anthony Price, who many consider is comparable to more famous spy novelists such as John le Carré. If you haven't tried Price’s cleverly written, complex and sophisticated espionage thrillers (for example Our Man in Camelot), you owe it to yourself to do so.
Anthony Price ingeniously combines the machinations of British Intelligence with the legend of King Arthur in an extraordinary thriller that crackles with suspense from start to finish. A US Air Force plane mysteriously vanishes on a flight from its base in Britain, and its ace pilot with it. The CIA investigates the missing pilot, and makes some odd findings - finding that will take British Intelligence officer David Audley back to the sixth century in an absorbing battle of wits with the Soviet secret police.
