Traitor's KissBook - 2006
An English trawler strays into Russian waters. When it returns, the captain has a package to deliver to British intelligence. For the next four years a high-ranked Russian naval officer, Viktor Archenko, passes valuable information to MI6. Suddenly the flow of information stops. His contacts in London know nothing about him but they know that he s under suspicion. The time has come to get him out. But a new breed plays the spy game now: men like Gabriel Locke. They have no interest in irrelevant Cold War sparring or the risk of a scandal. Only one veteran agent realizes that there is much more at stake than one man s life. With this latest tale of intrigue from perhaps today s preeminent writer of espionage fiction, readers are faced with a novelistic world that is as duplicitous, subtle, and as terrifyingly immediate as the headlines the world could wake up to tomorrow morning.
