If you want to kill somebody in France, an election is the perfect time, and a political rally the ideal location as the debate and street violence heat up despite the icy weather. And the weather itself could become political when brilliant young scientist Jean-Louis Ladouceur disappears. Has he defected to the Eastern Bloc or become a political pawn in both internal and international politics? His work with the think tank Instituit 21 was rumoured to be breaking new ground in Geo-economics, proposing a massive irrigation scheme in central Russia which will change the climate in France. What better way to destabilise France than to threaten next year's Champagne vintage....
Cody is a 28-year-old CIA trained agent, now trying to carve a new life in Paris with her lover; but mostly just trying to stay alive. Her training wasn't wasted, because there are always people willing to pay for certain skills, but she doesn't work for any security organization.
The trouble is, once they know you've been trained, they suspect you of being an active player in the great Cold War game.
You simply can't get out.
Cold War earned debut author David Brierley the accolade "a new name joins the world's greatest spy fiction writers" and his heroine Cody was quickly recognised as an agent just as tough and resourceful as a Bond or a Quiller.

From the Publisher:

Moreno, a psychopathic Spanish killer, is helped to escape from prison to aid KGB intelligence chief Feramontov recover the `Spyglass logbooks' which hold the key to political secrets hidden in a U-boat sunk at the end of World War II under cover of a marine biology research mission. But not only has Feramontov underestimated the violent appetites of the dangerous and unstable Moreno, but has unwittingly put his entire operation in the sights of freelance British special agent Johnny Fedora and his Foreign Office side-kick Sebastian Trout.
The violence escalates along the beautiful Mediterranean coast as Franco's police and intelligence services attempt to track Moreno, but it is left to Johnny Fedora to foil the KGB operation -and deal with Moreno - in a lethal scuba dive through the undertow into the deadly confines of a wrecked submarine.
In Johnny Fedora, the half-Irish, half-Spanish assassin contracted to British Intelligence, Desmond Cory created the first fictional `licensed to kill' secret agent, Fedora's debut appearing sixty years ago in 1951, two years before the arrival of James Bond in Casino Royale. The Fedora books, which continued until 1971, established Desmond Cory as a leading exponent of fast-moving, gem-hard `Brit Grit' spy thrillers and leading American critic Anthony Boucher dubbed Fedora `the thinking man's James Bond'.
