Academic and novelist Charles Latimer, the unlikely hero of The Mask of Dimitrios, returns thirty years later in The Intercom Conspiracy. Now a successful, bestselling author on the trail of a new book, Latimer steps in to help Theodore Carter, the hapless, hard-drinking editor of Intercom, a small, international political newspaper, investigate his bosses and the sources of the secrets he’s publishing. As Latimer and Carter get closer to the truth, they realise they’re jeopardising more than just their careers. ‘Effortless narrative... informed with a sense of how things actually work. The Intercom Conspiracy might fairly be described as a conscienceless send-up of the whole idea of secret intelligence.’ – The Sunday Times ‘Much wry humour and a great knowledge of the spy racket. To be read slowly, enjoyably.’ – Evening Standard
