Publisher's Summary

Officially, the Cold War is over, and the hand of friendship has been exchanged in public. In private, though, the intelligence war continues. A British trawler strays into Russian waters. On its return, the captain has a package for British Intelligence. For the next four years, a high-ranking Russian naval officer provides MI6 with priceless information. But suddenly he goes quiet. Clearly under suspicion, the decision is made to get him out. But his controllers in London know nothing about him.

An absolutely outstanding book

This author rarely if ever disappoints
Complex and beautifully structured tale
Outstanding delivery by narrator
Worth taking a long haul flight just to listen to

Tedious and tiresome!

Follows the same formula as the one other book by Seymour which I have listened to. Interesting characters and beginning, but the story soon gets tedious and boring. It was also quickly obvious what would happen in the end, as the story line was so similar to the aforementioned other book. I'll try to return this one.

Superb reading

Christopher Kay gives his usual polished performance, making all the characters live.
The story is good but too long drawn out for my taste. The characters have depth and individuality reinforced by their individual voices bestowed by Mr Kay

Okay but

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Far too much time is spent on ancillary and often irrelevant details that have no material part of the story, often seems like just padding! Some additional interest, alongside the main story line, can often enhance a book, but Seymour over does it to the point of boredom

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Predictable !

What does Christopher Kay bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Could you see Traitor’s Kiss being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?
