He risked it all to become a spy. Now he must pay the price.

A gripping new standalone spy thriller from the winner of the CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger for Best Thriller of the Year and 'the master of the modern spy thriller' - Mail on Sunday

One simple task for British Intelligence takes him into a world of danger.

Successful novelist Kit Carradine has grown restless. So when British Intelligence invites him to enter the secret world of espionage, he willingly takes a leap into the unknown.

But the glamour of being a spy is soon tainted by fear and betrayal, as Carradine finds himself in Morocco on the trail of Lara Bartok - a mysterious fugitive with links to international terrorism.

Bartok is a leading figure in Resurrection, a violent revolutionary movement whose brutal attacks on prominent right-wing politicians have spread hatred and violence throughout the West.

As the coils of a ruthless plot tighten around him, Carradine finds himself drawn to Lara. Caught between competing intelligence services who want her dead, he soon faces an awful choice: to abandon Lara to her fate or to risk everything trying to save her.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'I have been a fan of Charles Cumming ever since A Spy by Nature, and The Man Between is up there with the best - full of thrills, wit and fine writing, with a plot and themes that might have been taken from today's headlines. Writer/spy Kit Carradine is a thoroughly engaging protagonist, and I look forward to meeting him again. Superb espionage fiction' - Peter Robinson

'Cumming is the master spy novelist of our age. The Man Between is the definitive spy thriller for these troubled times' - Adam Rutherford, award-winning broadcaster and author

'The spies' shifting psychological duel is riveting ... deftly coupled with a topical subplot' - The Sunday Times

“Gripping from start to end”

This is the first of Charles Cumming's novels that I have read, and I was not disappointed. The plot was very in line with current events, which made the reading of it even more thrilling than if it had been set... More
