From one of our most treasured BBC broadcasters, The Spy Across the Water is the the third instalment in James Naughtie's brilliant spy series, woven around three brothers bound together forever through espionage.

We live with our history, but it can kill us.

Faces from the past appear from nowhere at a family funeral, and Will Flemyng, spy-turned-ambassador, is drawn into twin mysteries that threaten everything he holds dear. From Washington, he's pitched back into the Troubles in Northern Ireland and an explosive secret hidden deep in the most dangerous but fulfilling friendship he has known. And while he confronts shadowy adversaries in American streets, and looks for solace at home in the Scottish Highlands, he discovers that his government's most precious Cold War agent is in mortal danger and needs his help to survive.

In an electric story of courage and betrayal, Flemyng learns the truth that his life has left him a man with many friends, but still alone.

MEDIA REVIEWS

A splendidly gripping and atmospheric evocation of this febrile period - The Daily Telegraph

Intelligent, thoughtful and very emotional - The Herald

The best kind of thriller - resonant, intelligent, suspenseful - and plausible - Lee Child

A thoughtful and detailed novel of statecraft and spycraft, recommended for fans of le Carré - Ian Rankin

The plot is driven by the engaging portrayals of its central characters, and when the focus shifts to Scotland, Naughtie's description of the Highlands is positively lyrical - Promoting Crime Fiction

Naughtie writes sophisticated, complex spy novels, rich in character and incident. The Spy Across the Water is perhaps his finest yet. - Charles Cumming

“Spy thriller set 1980s USA and Scottish Highlands”

The Spy Across The Water is an intelligent and complex spy thriller. It is, in many ways, reminiscent of John le Carré. The book is the third in the Will Flemyng spy series by Naughtie – the others are Paris Spring... More

“A gripping story”

I have a little confession to make. Although I have the first book in the Will Flemyng series on my ever increasing 'to be read' mountain, I haven't actually read it yet. I know what a mistake to... More
