'Plotting in the best le Carré tradition' Mail on Sunday
From the author of Legacy, now a major BBC Film, and The Kaiser's Last Kiss comes a brilliant new novel for fans of John le Carre and Charles Cumming

Brexit looms and Charles Thoroughgood, Chief of MI6, is forbidden for political reasons from spying on the EU.  But when an EU official volunteers the EU’s negotiating bottom lines to one of his officers, Charles has to report it.  

Whitehall is eager for more but as the case develops Charles realises that it may not be quite what it appears.  At the same time, he finds he has a family connection with a possible terrorist whom MI5 want checked out.  In both cases, Charles is forced to become his own agent, seeking what he really does not want to find.
 
Authoritative and packed with in-depth knowledge, Accidental Agent is a gripping new spy thriller from a master of the genre.
