About this title


Dmitry Kalyagin, a British mole, becomes a member of the Politburo and enters a sequence of intrigue, betrayal, and murder that threatens his cover, his values, and his life

From Publishers Weekly:

Former BBC correspondent Sebastian (who wrote of his expulsion from the U.S.S.R. on espionage charges in I Spy in Russia) set this workmanlike, methodical first novel in wintry, forbidding Moscow, a city full of spies, counteragents and distrust. It's 1990, and Dmitry Kalyagin is about to attain membership in Gorbachev's politburo when his long-dormant status as a "mole" for the British is suddenly reactivated. English intelligence man George Parker, feeling indebted to Kalyagin, begins a covert effort to pull the agent out before his Soviet counterparts discover the traitor's identity. But as the body count starts to rise, Parker's attempts to protect Kalyagin are hampered by both Russian ruthlessness and British indifference. Parker's dogged persistence and Kalyagin's increasing desperation lead to a climactic showdown in the Moscow streets between two networks of spies. Despite a slow start and characterization that is both sketchy and cliched, this adroitly plotted novel builds to a compelling conclusion that stays true to Sebastian's bleak, cynical tone.
