He risked it all to become a spy. Now he must pay the price.

One simple task for British Intelligence takes him into a world of danger.

Successful novelist Kit Carradine has grown restless. So when British Intelligence invites him to enter the secret world of espionage, he willingly takes a leap into the unknown.

But the glamour of being a spy is soon tainted by fear and betrayal, as Carradine finds himself in Morocco on the trail of Lara Bartok - a mysterious fugitive with links to international terrorism.

Bartok is a leading figure in Resurrection, a violent revolutionary movement whose brutal attacks on prominent right-wing politicians have spread hatred and violence throughout the West.

As the coils of a ruthless plot tighten around him, Carradine finds himself drawn to Lara. Caught between competing intelligence services who want her dead, he soon faces an awful choice: to abandon Lara to her fate or to risk everything trying to save her.

`Rich in twists and cloak-and-dagger action ... typically accomplished and enthralling' Sunday Times `Charles Cumming's The Man Between continues the author's steady upwards trajectory; he will soon be snapping at the heels of such masters as John le Carre and Gerald Seymour' Guardian `I have been a fan of Charles Cumming ever since A Spy by Nature, and The Man Between is up there with the best - full of thrills, wit and fine writing, with a plot and themes that might have been taken from today's headlines. Writer/spy Kit Carradine is a thoroughly engaging protagonist, and I look forward to meeting him again. Superb espionage fiction' Peter Robinson `Cumming is the master spy novelist of our age. The Man Between is the definitive spy thriller for these troubled times' Adam Rutherford, award-winning broadcaster and author Praise for A Divided Spy: `A gripping psychological clash of wills, tactics and morals ... Kell's third appearance confirms him as one of the most interesting and sympathetic characters in the spy thriller field' The Times `A clever spy thriller combining believable spycraft, deft characterisation and acute psychological observation' Ben Macintyre `Breathtaking . . . suspenseful . . . Kell brings a note of grace to the treacherous world of the spy novel' Washington Post `The spies' shifting psychological duel is riveting ... deftly coupled with a topical subplot' Sunday Times `Thomas Kell has become one of the most interesting and well-drawn spies in contemporary literature - a man who deserves to be spoken in the same breath as George Smiley ... delicately written, with Cumming's customary subtle humour, it confirms him as le Carre's heir' Daily Mail `Agent Kell is hell-bent on revenge - but his quest ends up endangering Britain's national security. Classic spy fiction at its best' New York Post, Must Reads
