Waterstones Says

Tense and topical, the third instalment in Charles Cumming’s bestselling series revolving around the top-secret intelligence agency BOX 88 finds Lachlan Kite faced with an uncomfortably personal threat from a criminal network, as his old mission in West Africa comes back to haunt him.

The third book in Charles Cumming's gripping new thriller series surrounding BOX 88 - a covert intelligence organization that operates below the radar.

1995: In the wake of the Rwandan genocide, 24-year-old spy Lachlan Kite and his girlfriend, Martha Raine, are sent to Senegal on the trail of a hunted war criminal. The mission threatens to spiral out of control, forcing Kite to make choices which will have devastating consequences not only for his career at top-secret intelligence agency BOX 88, but also for his relationship with Martha.

2023: Eric Appiah, an old friend from Kite's days at school and an off-the-record BOX 88 asset, makes contact with explosive information about what happened all those years ago in West Africa. When tragedy strikes, Kite must use all his resources to bring down a criminal network with links to international terror ... and protect Martha from possible assassination.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Tense and Topical' Waterstones Best Espionage Thrillers of 2023 ‘‘The Rwandan genocide still casts a long shadow in this haunting, masterful work, which also asks tough questions about international justice’ Financial Times, Thriller of the Year ‘Cumming is perhaps matched only by Gerald Seymour now when it comes to recounting field operations; and in the Senegal set piece — with its vivid sense of place, its echoes of le Carré and Greene — he excels himself’ Sunday Times, Thriller of the Month 'Cumming’s concern for his protagonist’s psychological development remains the most distinctive aspect of his writing, but he also deserves kudos for his bold choice of setting, which adds skilful dabs of colour to a tightly wrought tale' The Times ‘A compelling exploration of the consequences of realpolitik and the intermingling of the personal with the political’ Guardian ‘Cumming marshals his twin time frames expertly and illuminates an awful chapter in recent history. A first-rate spy thriller’ Mail on Sunday ‘Atmospheric and packed with threat, it thrills on every single page’ Daily Mail ‘An enthralling, haunting work…taking the spy thriller to a new level of storytelling, one that illuminates the darkest corners of our modern world’ Financial Times ‘Compulsively readable’ Daily Telegraph ‘The unusual setting gives it real heft’ Sun ‘Educational and infuriating, this is a compelling depiction of the various layers of infamy involved in an appalling blot on the history of humanity’ Literary review ‘The action works to perfection, with thrills and suspense perfectly calibrated throughout’ Crime Time

“Dive back in to Kite's secret world”

It’s hard to believe it’s two years since I read JUDAS 62, the second in Charles Cumming’s series about a super-secret intelligence unit. The central character Lockie Kite is memorable so it was easy to pick up where... More

“Great Author”

Thank you to the publishers for the early review copy. This is the third in the series and I strongly advise you to read in order - so Box 88, then Judas 62 first.
This is a brilliant series and now I am pacing for... More

“Loved it!”

I didn’t know that this was the third book in a series, and really wish I’d read the others first. It was a tense, exciting and educational read, but to be honest I did get a bit lost at times and kept having to go... More
