SECOND IN THE NICK HELLYER ESPIONAGE SERIES
Nick Hellyer faces the spy’s ultimate dilemma. His mission is to infiltrate a chemical weapons programme and destroy it. But in the process, lives will be lost.
‘People have died because of my actions, but not through my intentions.’
His struggles with issues of complicity and guilt are set against a background of guerrilla insurgencies in southern Africa, and the successful army plot to overthrow the Portuguese government in 1974.
Fallout from a previous mission has made him an assassination target, and doubts as to where his lover and spy partner’s true loyalties lie heighten his insecurity.
FROM THE MILLION-SELLING AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR OF ARMAN’S JOURNEY AND WHY?
Nick Hellyer is an accidental spy. Expelled in disgrace from Cambridge, he’s hurled into the contradictory and vibrant city of Alexandria as Egypt heads towards the 1967 Arab–Israeli War. His double life as a secret agent mirrors the duplicities of his relationships. But when he stumbles on a war-changing secret, who can he trust not to betray or abandon him?
‘You don’t work for us and never have worked for us. This is what we would put out if you were rumbled. A rogue, a loose cannon’
