This electrifying debut from Jeremy Duns launches a trilogy of Cold War spy thrillers. It's 1969 and a KGB colonel has just entered the British High Commission in Nigeria and asked to defect. For MI6 agent Paul Dark, it's a promising opportunity. But Dark soon finds himself in trouble and on the run.
In July 1945, MI6 agent Paul Dark took part in a top-secret mission to hunt down and execute Nazi war criminals. Now it’s 1969, and a KGB colonel called Slavin has walked into the High Commission with information indicating there is a double agent within the service. Dark has been largely above suspicion during MI6’s years of self-recrimination, but this time he’s in the frame. His options are fight or flight - whatever the consequences.
