MEDIA REVIEWS

‘Often hailed as the heir to John le Carré, Charles Cumming sets out his credentials as well as he ever has in Judas 62.’ The Times ‘The storytelling is first-rate, with all the minutiae of spycraft, sense of place and memorable supporting characters you could wish for’ Sunday Times ‘Tense and topical, this has all you could want from an intelligent contemporary spy thriller’ The Times, Books of the Year ‘The first Kite novel was excellent, but this is even better — an elegant exposition of what being a spy in the field actually feels like and the fear it can instil in even the most hardened operator. Superbly constructed, it never hurries, but evokes the world of espionage in a way the late John le Carre would have much admired’ Daily Mail ‘This sequel to Cumming’s stunning Box 88 is further proof that the author is one of the most adroit practitioners of the espionage art; the spycraft involving a covert intelligence group operating below the radar is nonpareil’ i ‘Some of the best writing around on the intricacies of spycraft and the high price agents pay for doing their job’ Sun ‘Intelligent, relevant and engrossing’ NB Magazine ‘Cumming adroitly portrays Kite’s inner life…nail-biting’ Financial Times ‘ Cumming knows his stuff and has done his research, giving the novel an admirably authoritative air’ The Literary Review ‘Charles Cumming knows how to write a good spy novel’ The Herald ‘The gold standard in espionage fiction’ Kirkus
