Riassunto: A New York Times Bestselling Author -- On the vacation of a lifetime in Egypt, an elderly French couple is brutally murdered. Days later, Amelia Levene, the first female chief of MI6, disappears without a trace six weeks before she is due to take over as the most influential spy in Europe. Desperate not only to find her, but to keep her disappearance a secret, Britain's top intelligence agents turn to one of their own: disgraced MI6 officer Thomas Kell is given one final chance to redeem himself.

"Silkily written, and more cool than hot?might make le Carré proud."--The New York Times BOOK REVIEW



On the vacation of a lifetime in Egypt, an elderly French couple is brutally murdered. Then, days later, on the streets of Paris, a young French accountant is kidnapped. When Amelia Levene, who in six weeks is due to take over as the first female Chief of MI6, disappears without a trace while in the south of France, it is the gravest crisis MI6 has faced in more than a decade. Desperate not only to find her but to keep the press from learning that she has gone missing, Britain's top intelligence agents turn to one of their own: disgraced former MI6 officer Thomas Kell.



"Eat your heart out, Daniel Craig...Cumming vividly showcases the undercover life of spies."--GQ



Tossed out of the Service only months before, Kell is given one final chance to redeem himself--all he has to do is find Amelia Levene: quickly, quietly, and at any cost. Following a trail that leads him to France and then Tunisia, Kell uncovers a shocking secret and a conspiracy that could have unimaginable repercussions for Britain and its allies. All that stands in the way of personal and political catastrophe is Kell himself?



"Superb."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
