Clive Egleton has extensive personal experience in the intelligence and counter-intelligence fields and is widely regarded as one of the finest writers of the espionage thriller in its classic form. His the author of twenty-nine novels, most recently ""One Man Running,"" He lives on the Isle of Wight.
The late Egleton’s name has been synonymous with top-notch espionage thrillers for more than 30 years. His characters exude authenticity, and his plots are knotty enough to keep even the most seasoned spy fan off balance. This one, published in the UK in 1982 but only now appearing in the U.S., is set in London just as the Cuban missile crisis is heating up. After the body of British double agent George Deakin is found on a Southampton beach, spymaster Charles Winter suspects that the death is connected to the defection of Deakin’s KGB controller, Vasili Korznikov, to the U.S. Winter and his British colleagues are anxious to interview Korznikov, but the Americans want him for themselves. As events unfold, Winter realizes there may be a mole in his department. Trusting no one, he travels to America to find the truth, but when his American counterpart is murdered, he realizes that it’s up to him to expose the mole. A familiar plot to be sure, but Egleton hits all the right notes. For fans of classic cold-war espionage. --Emily Melton
