9780007337835: The Trinity Six

Perfect for fans of John le Carré – the most explosive secret of the Cold War could be exposed: but the bigger the lie, the more ruthlessly it will be protected…

Hard-up Russia expert Dr Sam Gaddis finally has a lead for the book that could solve all his career problems. But the story of a lifetime becomes an obsession that could kill him.

When his source is found dead, Gaddis is alone on the trail of the Cold War’s deadliest secret: the undiscovered sixth member of the infamous Cambridge spy ring.

Suddenly threatened at every step and caught between two beautiful women, both with access to crucial evidence, Sam cannot trust anyone.

To get his life back, he must chase shadows through Europe’s corridors of power. But the bigger the lie, the more ruthlessly the truth is kept buried…

Review:

Praise for The Trinity Six:

‘An utterly absorbing and compelling novel. A brilliant re-imagining of events surrounding the notorious Cambridge spy-ring’ William Boyd, bestselling author of Restless

‘Sheer excitement’ Daily Telegraph

‘Often talked of as a potential heir to John le Carré, Cumming confirms here that he’s a reliably classy storyteller … an assured and richly enjoyable thriller’ Sunday Times

‘Delicate and supremely controlled, this is a spy story to be savoured, not rushed’ Daily Mail

‘None of the new generation of spy writers lives up to the standard set by Deighton, Forsyth and Le Carré. Enter Cumming, a long-awaited light at the end of a very long tunnel … This is today's spooks at their most ruthless, with Sam, a heroic if naive amateur sleuth, taking international hitmen and beautiful female agents in his stride to get to the truth. As good as Le Carré – praise indeed’ Guardian

Praise for Charles Cumming:

‘From the first page to the last it has the ring of absolute authenticity. Tautly written, cleverly plotted…it reminded me strongly of the early books of John le Carré’ Robert Harris

‘The master of the modern spy thriller’ Mail On Sunday

‘If Cumming keeps up this standard he deserves to become an institution in his own right’ The Times

About the Author:

Charles Cumming was born in Scotland in 1971. He was educated at Eton and graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 1994 with First Class Honours in English Literature. The Observer has described him as "the best of the new generation of British spy writers who are taking over where John le Carré and Len Deighton left off". In the summer of 1995, Charles was approached for recruitment by the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6). A year later he moved to Montreal where he began working on a novel based on his experiences with MI6. A Spy By Nature was published in the UK in 2001. This is his fifth novel.
