To decide, King has challenged six competitors-including Eddie-to solve five mysteries all around the world, figuring that along the way they'll backstab each other until only one remains. Eddie has got to win at all costs, because King holds the most important secret of all to the Droods-the identity of the traitor in their midst...
The Spy Who Haunted me is the third title in Simon R. Green's Secret History series featuring Eddie Drood.
Green's bright, fast-paced third Eddie "Shaman Bond" Drood adventure (after 2008's Daemons Are Forever) opens with rumors of a traitor undermining the Drood family's efforts to guard humanity against paranormal and mystical threats. Complicating matters, legendary agent Arthur King is dying without an heir. Eddie joins a group of other agents in tackling King's challenge: solve five of mankind's greatest mysteries and learn King's secrets, including the traitor's name. Engaging, well-crafted quests take the team from Loch Ness to Roswell, where Eddie is forced to choose between saving humanity and recovering the information his family desperately needs. Though some supporting characters are clearly meant to be disposable, Eddie makes a likable hero, and fans will enjoy following him through this surprisingly complex mystery.
