An MI6 officer, haunted by the ghosts of an SS atrocity, kills a Nazi war criminal in the ruins of a U-boot bunker. The German turns out to be a CIA asset being rat-lined to South America.As a hungry Britain freezes in the winter of 1947, a young cabinet minister negotiates a deal with Moscow trading Rolls-Royce jet engines for cattle fodder and wood. Both have made powerful enemies with long memories. The fates of the two men become entwined as one rises through MI6 and the other to Downing Street. It is the mid-1970s and a coup d'etat is imminent.A Very British Ending is the Wolf Hall of power games in modern Britain. Senior MI6 officers, Catesby and Bone, try to outwit a cabal of plotters trying to overthrow the Prime Minister. The author once again reveals the dark underside of the Secret State on both sides of the Atlantic.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Edward Wilson seems poised to inherit the mantle of John le Carre'

* Irish Independent *

'We attempt to second-guess both Catesby and his crafty creator, and are soundly outfoxed at every turn...Wilson is now firmly ensconced in the new firmament of espionage writing'

-- Barry Forshaw * Independent *

'Edward Wilson himself is a most assured writer, adept more than most in this factual/fiction genre combining first-rate characterisation and a depth of detail that entwines itself around real and supposed events. This is a fantastic read.'

* Morning Star *
