LoveReading View on The Shanghai Factor

A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.Often seen as the American Le Carre, McCarry is an understated spy thriller writer who seldom puts a foot wrong. Although his new novel does not feature his eponymous Christopher family, it does not disappoint, a jigsaw puzzle involving Chinese intelligence and a murky branch of the US apparatus, in which no characters are black or white or who they appear to first be.

The Shanghai Factor Synopsis

An American spy in China. Name: Unknown. Status: Sleeper. He's meant to be laying low, polishing his Mandarin and awaiting further instructions from Washington. But Shandhai is a difficult city to sleep in, especially when his nights are taken over by the seductive but enigmatic Mei - a woman with secrets he'd rather not hear. Then he is tasked with a delicate operation. Infiltrate the core of the Chinese intelligence service. Distinguish friend from foe. Report to a single contact at HQ. Trust no one. Tell no one. Pushed out into the cold, in a city of millions he's suddenly very, very alone. But in Shanghai city you're never truly alone. Faceless strangers linger in the shadows, watching your every move. No one is safe from the Guoanbu. Not even a spy with no name...
