Description

From the bestselling author of Leaving Berlin and Istanbul Passage comes a thrilling and richly imagined novel about the life of an American spy who defected to Moscow when his cover was blown in the early days of the Cold War

THE EXPLOSIVE NEW THRILLER FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF LEAVING BERLIN Some secrets should never be told. Moscow, 1961: With the launch of Sputnik, the Soviet Union's international prestige is at an all-time high. And the most notorious of the defectors to the Soviet Union, former CIA agent Frank Weeks, is about to publish his memoirs. What he reveals will send shock waves through the West. Weeks' defection in the early 1950s shook Washington to its core - and forced the resignation of his brother, Simon, from the State Department. Simon, now a publisher in New York, is given the opportunity to read and publish his brother's memoir. He knows the US government will never approve the publication of what is clearly intended as KGB propaganda. Yet the offer is irresistible: it will finally give him the chance to learn why his brother chose to betray his country. But what he discovers in Moscow is far more shocking than he ever imagined ... 'One of the most exciting books I've read in years' Alexander McCall Smith on Leaving Berlin 'Spectacular in every way' Lee Child on Stardust 'Tense and atmospheric, with sinister intrigue' Wall Street Journal on Istanbul Passage
