9780007467549: A Divided Spy

In A Divided Spy, a brilliant novel of modern espionage by New York Times bestselling author Charles Cumming, MI6’s Thomas Kell faces off against a handsome and charismatic Russian double agent.

"Astonishingly masterful . . . riveting." ―Valerie Plame, New York Times bestselling author of Fair Game

Thomas Kell thought he was done with spying. A former MI6 officer, he devoted his life to the Service, but it has left him with nothing but grief and a simmering anger against the Kremlin.

Then Kell is offered an unexpected chance at revenge. Taking the law into his own hands, he embarks on a mission to recruit a top Russian spy who is in possession of a terrifying secret. As Kell tracks his man from Moscow to London, he finds himself in a high stakes game of cat and mouse in which it becomes increasingly difficult to know who is playing whom.

As the mission reaches boiling point, the threat of a catastrophic terrorist attack looms over Britain. Kell is faced with an impossible choice. Loyalty to MI6―or to his own conscience?

Review:

“Breathtaking . . . suspenseful . . . Kell brings a note of grace to the treacherous world of the spy novel." Washington Post

"A gripping tale of revente, betrayal and the personal price that spying exacts." People magazine

“A smart, nuanced, readable tale, reminiscent of Olen Steinhauer or Robert Littell . . . Cumming has mastered the texture and language of espionage . . . [A Divided Spy is] a fine specimen of a genre headed back toward the Kremlin.” USA Today

“Agent Kell ishell-bent on revenge ― but his quest ends up endangering Britain’s nationalsecurity. Classic spy fiction at its best.”New York Post, “Must Reads”

"A magnetic tale of the New Cold War: not since George Smiley trapped Karla have we seen such a delicious recruitment between East and West." ― Jason Matthews, New York Times bestselling author of Palace of Treason

"Cumming not only tells a moving human story here, he also constructs an airtight espionage plot full of unanticipated twists and leading up to a perfectly orchestrated finale." Booklist (starred)

“Nuanced, suspenseful . . . a perfectly constructed plot proves once again that Cumming is among today’s top spy thriller writers.”Publishers Weekly (starred)

“Cumming writes with ruefully brittle intelligence and keeps the twists coming.” Kirkus Reviews

"Charles Cumming is astonishingly masterful at capturing the grey and sometimes amoral world of espionage. A Divided Spy feels authentic and is a riveting read that should be devoured in one sitting." ―Valerie Plame, New York Times bestselling author of Fair Game: My Life as a Spy, My Betrayal by the White House

“A convincing and gripping spy thriller with a clever, twisty plot, believable characters and an abundance of credible spy lore. Highly recommended.” The Age

“Thomas Kell has become one of the most interesting and well-drawn spies in contemporary literature ― a man who now deserves to be spoken of in the same breath as George Smiley, and who is every bit as discreet. . . . Delicately written, with Cumming’s customary subtle humor, [A Divided Spy] confirms him as le Carre’s heir.” The Daily Mail

“Cumming has a growing reputation as the heir to the John Le Carré tradition in British fiction.” ―Alan Cheuse, NPR

“Compelling. . . complex. . . dangerous. . . Hard to put down.” The Washington Post
