Anthony Price’s brilliantly ingenious thriller of terrorism and espionage
Officially Dr Audley is on holiday in the West Country. But it cannot be pure coincidence that the formidable intelligence officer is staying at Duntisbury Manor as the guest of General Maxwell’s grand-daughter.
Because General Maxwell has recently been murdered by terrorists using a car bomb. And Audley has not seen fit to tell Colonel Butler what he is up to: if he has a lead on the assassination, he is keeping it to himself.
So Colonel Butler has to send in an agent to spy on Audley – someone who won’t know…
‘Anthony Price’s 13th novel – and a lucky number it proves to be for those of us who relish a spy story that is beautifully crafted, well written, and carries us through a maze of murder and mayhem without a false step’ The Standard
‘A most ingenious constructor of convoluted plots… the story moves as sinuously as a frogman through the reeds’ Daily Telegraph
