`Recommended. I read it one breathless sitting' Ian Rankin A gripping new standalone spy thriller from the winner of the CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger for Best Thriller of the Year and `the master of the modern spy thriller' (Mail on Sunday).

A simple task for MI6 could cost him everything...

A SIMPLE TASK 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.

A GLOBAL THREAT Kit finds himself in Morocco on the trail of Lara Bartok - a leading figure in Resurrection, a revolutionary movement whose brutal attacks on right-wing politicians have spread violence throughout the West.

A DANGEROUS TARGET Drawn to Lara, but caught between competing intelligence services who want her dead, Kit faces an awful choice: abandon her to her fate or risk everything trying to save her.

`Recommended. I read it one breathless sitting' Ian Rankin `Charles Cumming gets better with each book ` The Times `Plunges a novelist into a deliciously twisty imbroglio in Morocco; it's Cumming at his most relaxed and engaging' Telegraph, Books of the Year `An instant classic of the spy genre' Mick Herron `Nobody writes more enjoyable spy thrillers than Charles Cumming' Anthony Horowitz `A real page-turner' Peter Robinson, Daily Mail `Rich in twists and cloak-and-dagger action ... typically accomplished and enthralling' Sunday Times `Credibly obsessed and convincingly foolish, Carradine is an interesting character in a pleasingly original spy story' Literary Review `Lift the lid off Cumming's novel The Man Between and breathe in an exotic tagine stew, redolent of murderous international conspiracy, assassination, kidnapping, and a beautiful dangerous woman, set against the colourful matchstick mosaic of Marrakesh. Another Cumming triumph' Jason Matthews `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 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 `The spies' shifting psychological duel is riveting ... deftly coupled with a topical subplot' Sunday Times
