THRILLER OF THE MONTH ‘Superb . . . a blend of historical imagination and storytelling verve reminiscent of Robert Harris.’ The Sunday Times

'The most exciting, involving thriller I've read in an age, and I can't recommend it highly enough.' Mick Herron

*

A Treachery of Spies is an espionage thriller to rival the very best, a high stakes game of cat-and-mouse, played in the shadows, which will keep you guessing every step of the way.

A body has been found. The elderly victim’s identity has been cleverly obscured but one thing is clear: she has been killed in the manner of traitors to the Resistance in World War Two.

To find answers in the present, police inspector Inès Picaut must look to the past; to 1940s France, a time of sworn allegiances and broken promises, where the men and women of the Resistance fought for survival against Nazi invaders.

But, as Picaut soon discovers, there are those in the present whose futures depend on the past remaining buried, and who will kill to keep their secrets safe. Old fashioned espionage might be a thing of the past but treachery is as dangerous as ever.

*

'This is a rich vein for fiction, and Scott does it more than justice, with this beautifully imagined, beautifully written, smart, sophisticated - but fiercely suspenseful - thriller.' Lee Child

'The most exquisite story of heroism, deception, love and treachery you’ll find this year.' Simon Mayo

'A fast-moving tightly-wrought thriller. The destination is in fact as unexpected as it’s satisfying - and very thought-provoking.' Robert Goddard

'A Treachery of Spies is a masterclass in thriller-writing. It is a heart-racing, heart-wrenching read, conceived with passion and executed with frightening skill. An awe-inspiring achievement.' Giles Kristian

Review:

"Superb . . . a blend of historical imagination and storytelling verve reminiscent of Robert Harris." (The Sunday Times)

"A Treachery of Spies is the equal of Charlotte Gray in its insights into the period and, I would say, beats it for sheer excitement... one of the most gripping spy stories I have ever read." (Jake Kerridge S Magazine)

"This book opened up and swallowed me whole - the characters, the plot, the writing, everything. It's the most exciting, involving thriller I've read in an age, and I can't recommend it highly enough." (Mick Herron)

"[Scott's] writing is as commanding as ever" (Barry Forshaw Guardian)

"This is a rich vein for fiction, and Scott does it more than justice, with this beautifully imagined, beautifully written, smart, sophisticated - but fiercely suspenseful - thriller." (Lee Child)
