"The plot is pleasingly convoluted, the twists unexpected, the characters flawed and interesting. This is spy fiction of the highest order; Cumming deserves to be ranked with the best of the genre's practitioners." (starred review)
From the Publisher
Annotation In Charles Cumming's second deviously constructed spy novel, Alec Milius works in a bank in Madrid, his former career as an agent for M16 tarnished by a scandalous operation run in opposition to the CIA. Milius is a delightful wreck of a character, a drunk and adulterer with a lingering paranoid terror that the espionage life has not truly left him behind. His fears become founded when, on a business trip to the Basque country, he becomes involved with a former member of the Basque liberation army. The plotting is impeccable and the research is meticulous, but the true joy of Cumming's work is his vivid, irascible, and edgy characters who scrabble desperately for footing in their shadow world.
Editors Note Attempting to rebuild his life in Madrid, former spy Alec Milius struggles to live below the radar as an investment banker, until the disappearance of a prominent politician places him in the middle of an international conspiracy.
