Publisher's Summary

Fearing for his life, journalist Philip Mangan has gone into hiding from the Chinese agents who have identified him as British spy. His reputation and life are in tatters.

But when he is caught in a terrorist attack in East Africa and a shadowy Chinese figure approaches him in the dead of night with information on the origins of the attack, Mangan is suddenly back in the eye of the storm.

Meanwhile, thousands of miles away on a humid Hong Kong night, a key MI6 source is murdered minutes after meeting spy Trish Patterson. From Washington, DC to the hallowed halls of Oxford University and dusty African streets, a sinister power is stirring which will use Mangan and Patterson as its pawns - if they survive.

Deeply steeped in tension and paranoia, Spy Games is Adam Brookes' follow-up to his award-nominated debut Night Heron and a remarkable, groundbreaking spy thriller.

    "Read the book save the credit"
    What did you like best about Spy Games? What did you like least?

    The story was okay...the reader needs more practice. Should have auditioned more readers


    If you’ve listened to books by Adam Brookes before, how does this one compare?

    No...and I hope not to.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Richard Coyle’s performances?

    No, no, and no again


    Could you see Spy Games being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No read the book and make your own voices
