"The Envoy", Edward Wilson's second novel, will prove familiar territory for fans on "A River in May". The setting is 1950s London, at the height of the Cold War. Kit Fournier is ostensibly a senior diplomat at the US embassy in Grosvenor Square who is also CIA Chief of Station. With the arms race looming large Kit goes undercover to meet with his KGB counterpart to pass on secret information about British spies. In a world where truth means deception and love means honey trap, sexual blackmail and personal betrayal are essential skills. As a H-bomb apocalypse hangs over London, Kit Fournier faces a crisis of the soul. The unveiling of his own dark personal secret proves more deadly than his coded dispatches. This sophisticated novel will have you turning pages until its gripping denouement.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'A glorious, seething broth of historical fact and old-fashioned spy story' -The Times 'Sophisticated and convincing' -Sunday Telegraph 'A page-turner to the last' -Tribune 'This is not only one of the three or four best spy novels I've ever read, it is also a startlingly honest and insightful account of the post-war settlement and the true motives behind the cold war' -Emmanuel Cooper, Morning Star. 'Wilson, author of one of the best novels about the war in Vietnam (A River in May) has here created an utterly convincing and intensely readable novel about a period, a mere fifty years ago, when the world was in dangerous flux' -Peter Burton, 3Sixty
