About this title


Henry Jaggard of British intelligence creates a plan to discipline a subordinate while intervening in the secret meeting of two feuding KGB agents

From Library Journal:

In this spy thriller enriched with scholarly and literary trivia, the plot hinges on interdepartmental rivalry in the British intelligence establishment. The rivalry is played out against a backdrop of Polish dissident groups and aging Soviet spies, and Price captures the essential isolation of spies from the real world and from any clear foreign policy goals. However, there's a lot of romantic nonsense about the Polish national character; one of the half-Polish British spooks, Sir Thomas Arkenshaw, is embroiled in a struggle between his stolid British and hot-blooded Polish genes. Nevertheless, the book is well written and has some good dialogue. Best of all, the bureaucrat who concocted that plot against his rivals finds it exploding in his face. Even in the spy world there's still some justice. Louise A. Merriam, L.E. Phillips Memorial P.L., Eau Claire, Wis.
