'The British spy thriller at its unputdownable best' Observer

SELECTED FOR BBC 2 BETWEEN THE COVERS
________________________________

Nat, a veteran of Britain's Secret Intelligence Service, thinks his years as an agent runner are over. But MI6 have other plans. To tackle the growing threat from Moscow Centre, Nat is put in charge of The Haven, a defunct substation of London General with a rag-tag band of spies. His weekly badminton session with the young, introspective, Brexit-hating Ed, offers respite from the new job. But it is Ed, of all unlikely people, who will take Nat down the path of political anger that will ensnare them all.

Agent running in the field

Very slow moving, little character development and little exploration of relationships between the characters. As with other Le Carre books, I found it difficult to engage with this one also. Maybe just me, but I found this novel uninspired and dull. I gave up half way through.
