'A sophisticated, convincing novel that shows governments and their secret services as cynically exploitative and utterly ruthless' - Susanna Yager, Sunday Telegraph

A page-turner to the last Tribune


Edward Wilson's second novel will prove familiar territory for fans of A River in May. The setting is 1950s London, at the height of the Cold War. Kit Fournier is ostensibly a senior diplomat at the US embassy in Grosvenor Square, but it actually CIA bureau chef in London. The Arms Race informs much of the action in this fast-paced page turner which sees Kit go undercover to meet a dissident KGB agent, lose a loved one, have a crisis of soul and get blackmailed into becoming a double agent for M16...

Product Description:

Envoy

Review:

'A glorious, seething broth of historical fact and old-fashioned spy story' --The Times

'This is not only one of the three or four best spy novels I've ever read, it is also a startlingly honest and insightful account of the post-war settlement and the true motives behind the cold war' --Emmanuel Cooper, Morning Star

'Wilson, author of one of the best novels about the war in Vietnam (A River in May) has here created an utterly convincing and intensely readable novel about a period, a mere fifty years ago, when the world was in dangerous flux' --Peter Burton, 3Sixty
