Publisher's Summary

Dieter Hess, an aged spy, is dead, and John Bachelor, his MI5 handler, is in deep, deep trouble. Death has revealed that the deceased had been keeping a secret second bank account - and there's only ever one reason a spy has a secret second bank account. The question of whether he was a double agent must be resolved, and its answer may undo an entire career's worth of spy secrets.

Another excellent little story of espionage.

Herron is writing some of the best spy stories of the last 20 years. Now that might not seem like much because most of the finest ones were done before then, but that's just most. These are not the sort of spec ops thrillers which get most of the credits like the excellent Mitch Rapp or John Wells books do. These are books about the system, planning, climbing and covering of the intelligence business. Though this is just a short story, and Jackson Lamb and his stable of horses are a supporting cast, it was a very satisfying handler and asset tale.
