In a dangerous world nothing is straightforward. Not even murder.

‘Judd…knows his stuff when it comes to the milieu of espionage.’ The Times

‘An elegant and informed British espionage novel.’ Financial Times

‘Authentic, clever and wonderfully entertaining.’ Sir Richard Dearlove, former head of MI6 

'We can't think of a better Christmas read.' Oxford Alumni Magazine
 
‘He saw Cleaner Bob arrive that morning, the morning of his death.’
 
In the peaceful towns and villages of England, Cleaner Bob is washing windows, and people are dying in sudden and unexpected circumstances. When it becomes clear that the victims have a common history as Russian defectors, foul play is suspected and a hunt begins to locate their assailant, the lethal poison that killed them, and the mole who is leaking their locations.
 
In a race against time, only one man has the connections and experience to crack the case before more people perish. Charles Thoroughgood, former head of MI6, is enjoying retirement in the Oxfordshire hamlet he calls home when the call comes in. A man of duty, he agrees to take part in a mission that will lead him into the heart of enemy territory and threaten to undermine the very values he holds most dear.
 
Tense, engrossing and terrifyingly believable, the latest Charles Thoroughgood novel is a timely and brilliant reminder that Alan Judd is a master of the spy thriller and a writer of the very highest quality.

“A tale of espionage that has a slightly ‘classic’ vibe to it. Excellent.”

I can’t help feeling that Alan Judd’s series about Charles Thoroughgood would make a great TV series. The books have a vibe somewhere between Morse and Smiley and are very readable. I came to them late, so I've... More
