Publisher Description

Written by 'a sublimely elegant historical novelist as addictive as crack'- Daily Telegraph

The Inspector Troy series is perfect for fans of Le Carré, Philip Kerr and Alan Furst.

London, 1956.

Khrushchev and Bulganin, leaders of the Soviet Union, are in Britain on an official visit. Chief Inspector Troy is assigned to be Khrushchev's bodyguard and to spy on him. Soon after, a Royal Navy diver is found dead and mutilated beyond recognition in Portsmouth Harbour. What was he doing under the hull of Khrushchev's ship, and who sent him there?

Meanwhile, cold-blooded killings have started to follow Troy wherever he goes. Is it possible that the executioner is a fellow policeman, or, worse still, an old friend?

Col. Russel ,

Red but not a Turkey

The century before last we furnished our homes with the richness of Turkey Red carpets, this Cold War thrill richly furnishes the reader’s mind with an intoxicating cocktail of fact and fiction. It is an intriguing mixture of spy story and police procedural with a protagonist who is complex and not always sympathetic but whose adventures I will follow fain

Old flames

Much more in the Troy tradition, although I found the leap from the lucky shot in black out compared to the five rounds through the heart and the body still moved difficult to accept, but an intriguing read nonetheless! Definitely worth reading.
