'A tour de force of delicate, intricate, glorious spy craft...' M.C. Scott

From the secret archives of the Comptrollerate-General for Scrutiny and Survey

Summer 1914: Europe is on the brink. As Britain's enemies grow stronger, the Comptroller-General must confront the man with whom he has struggled for a generation - a man he knows only as the Spider. In a desperate gamble, he sends four agents out across the continent, on a mission they do not understand...

The future of British intelligence - of the British Empire - is in their hands. Not all of them will return. Unique and resourceful, hunted and deceived, they have embarked on a journey that will climax in the town of Sarajevo on the 28th of June 1914.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The Spider of Sarajevo is a tour de force of delicate, intricate, glorious spy craft... The depth of passion and intellect shines from the page... If you only read one novel about the Great War this year, make it this one -- M.C. Scott
Robert Wilton is one of the smartest novelists we have. A touch of Conrad, more than a dash of Buchan... and a daring prose style that can set you blinking and thinking. Simply brilliant -- John Lawton
A learned, beautifully written, elegant spy thriller -- Marcel Berlins * The Times *

[A] very rewarding work of historical spy fiction... intelligent and interesting... The comptrollerate-general is a brilliant invention

-- Nick Rennison * BBC History magazine *
Fascinating history, exciting narrative and a wonderfully gripping (true) yarn * The Bookbag *
