9780393335644: The Sunday Spy: A Novel

Taken together, William Hood's books present what may be the most accurate, unvarnished look ever at the real world of espionage.

Alan Trosper reluctantly returns to the world of post-Cold War espionage when a State Department secretary, compromised by pornographic photographs, is murdered and a freelance, former Soviet agent offers to self proof of a highly placed spy. By the author of Cry Spy.

Review:

Hood has never gotten the attention he deserves from critics or readers of LeCarre and Deighton, but there's proof on every page of his books (Cry Spy, Spy Wednesday) that he's the genuine article -- a veteran intelligence officer who knows how to create a compelling story. This one begins with a desperate woman telling an American diplomat she's still being blackmailed for an indiscretion in Moscow in the old KGB days. When the woman winds up dead in Central Park, it becomes obvious that the new Russian intelligence forces haven't cut all their ties to the past. Agent Alan Trosper comes in from the cold to sort things out, in a sad but satisfying manner.

From the Back Cover:

It is an unlikely combination of disasters that persuades Alan Trosper, the reluctant hero of William Hood's earlier novels Spy Wednesday and Cry Spy, to take up once again the tools of his craft: A State Department secretary, compromised by pornographic Russian surveillance photographs, is killed in a bizarre Central Park hit; and a former Moscow Center agent, now freelancing for himself, offers to sell evidence of the activities of a highly placed spy. The agent's letter also provides a clue that the security of the Firm itself may have been breached, and three of Trosper's former colleagues have come under suspicion. This compelling and utterly convincing story presents a new twist on the familiar theme of spy and counter-spy, for in place of the monolith of the Soviet Empire, Trosper now confronts an intelligence world fragmented beyond recognition, where agents scramble to attach themselves to new masters, where old allegiances cannot be trusted.
