9780030591327: The Contract

Discharged from the British Army in disgrace, Johnny Donoghue is eager to earn his redemption. His assignment is to slip into East Germany and arrange the defection of a top-flight scientist working on the Soviet missile systems. The British need him but cannot risk involving the Secret Intelligence Service. No one warned Johnny, however, of the traps in store. No one reminded him how fickle politicians can be. No one really knew the horrific dangers of the East-West border. And no one told him that the scientistís daughter would be coming too.

Review:

Very good... This novel outclasses the thriller genre ( Financial Times)

Hyper-suspenseful... Not to be missed' ( Guardian)

Superior quality... Taps more than just adrenalin ( Observer)

Tension alone would make The Contract an unusually satisfying thriller. In addition it has characters simply but deftly drawn... The writing is crisp and confident ( Sunday Independent)
