A simple task for MI6 could cost him everything...

A SIMPLE TASK

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.

A GLOBAL THREAT

Kit finds himself in Morocco on the trail of Lara Bartok - a leading figure in Resurrection, a revolutionary movement whose brutal attacks on right-wing politicians have spread violence throughout the West.

A DANGEROUS TARGET

Drawn to Lara, but caught between competing intelligence services who want her dead, Kit faces an awful choice: abandon her to her fate or risk everything trying to save her.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Recommended. I read it one breathless sitting.' - Ian Rankin

'Charles Cumming gets better with each book.' - The Times

'Plunges a novelist into a deliciously twisty imbroglio in Morocco; it's Cumming at his most relaxed and engaging.' - Telegraph, Books of the Year

'An instant classic of the spy genre.' - Mick Herron

'Nobody writes more enjoyable spy thrillers than Charles Cumming.' - Anthony Horowitz

'A real page-turner.' - Peter Robinson, Daily Mail

'Rich in twists and cloak-and-dagger action ... typically accomplished and enthralling.' - Sunday Times

'Credibly obsessed and convincingly foolish, Carradine is an interesting character in a pleasingly original spy story.' - Literary Review

'Lift the lid off Cumming's novel The Man Between and breathe in an exotic tagine stew, redolent of murderous international conspiracy, assassination, kidnapping, and a beautiful dangerous woman, set against the colourful matchstick mosaic of Marrakesh. Another Cumming triumph.' - Jason Matthews

'Charles Cumming's The Man Between continues the author's steady upwards trajectory; he will soon be snapping at the heels of such masters as John le Carre and Gerald Seymour.' - Guardian

'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

Praise for A Divided Spy:

'A gripping psychological clash of wills, tactics and morals ... Kell's third appearance confirms him as one of the most interesting and sympathetic characters in the spy thriller field.' - The Times

“Going after the Girl”

Mr Cumming's novel is a throwback (and a welcome one) to the spy and espionage stories of the near term past. Kit Carradine is an author who's forte is writing well received spy novels. He is known for... More

“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
