Charles Cumming brings a fresh energy to the spy thriller genre. This stand-alone volume stars a quiet novelist (alter ego?) dragged into a world of international espionage; the style, as the protagonist describes his own writing, is a middle path between the over-action of Ludlum and the more intricate pacing of Le Carre. The story proceeds with forthright homage to Casablanca, the Man Who Knew Too Much, and Frederick Forysth's memoir, but all are updated: this is Hitchcock in the age of GPS and AirBNB, the age of WhatsApp and satellite surveillance.
