Waterstones Says

Newly reissued, this is a gem of an espionage thriller from the author of The Alexandria Quartet. Drawing on Durrell’s own experiences in post-war Belgrade White Eagles Over Serbia is an assured, dizzying adventure across the Serbian mountains as agent Methuen follows the twisting trail of a murdered intelligence officer.

Lose yourself in this classic 1950s Cold War spy thriller tracking a British secret agent in Communist Serbia by the celebrated author of The Alexandria Quartet.

Methuen is a seasoned British secret agent, weary of espionage missions and desperately in need of a break - but he can't resist an assignment to investigate dirty dealings in the Balkans. A fellow British spy has been murdered in Serbia by a guerrilla gang of underground royalists, the White Eagles - but when Methuen arrives, he soon finds himself in a life-and-death struggle, pursued by both the royalists and Communists alike ...

Inspired by Lawrence Durrell's own experiences in the British Foreign Office, White Eagles Over Serbia is a classic Cold War espionage thriller: a white-knuckle adventure perfect for fans of John le Carré and Graham Greene.

“Great Spy story in the best tradition…”

Perfect pace… ticks along and keeps you hooked. Durrell’s style really puts you on location and you can feel the mountain air, sense the river running by, feel the suspense.
