Product description


'Searle has fun with the office politics of the intelligence world, and is thoughtful about the ethics of espionage... it seems something akin to poetry can be the best medium for expressing the practicalities of the hard-nosed business of espionage. (– The Telegraph, The 31 best thrillers and crime novels of 2019 so far)

Meticulously plotted, with wonderfully drawn characters and an elegant prose style that makes this every bit as compelling as Searle's stirring debut, The Good Liar (Daily Mail)

A thought-provoking read that bursts with tension (Financial Times)

A spy thriller with extra authority (Jonathan Freedland, Guardian)

Former intelligence officer turned crime writer Searle is stepping into the gap left by John le Carré with his elegantly slippery novels that combine a pulse-raising plot with a broader interest in what it means to deceive . . . raises interesting questions about choice, motivation and the impossibility of ever truly knowing another (Metro)

An assured thriller debut in the footsteps of le Carré, Highsmith and Rendell (Guardian on 'The Good Liar')

This is set to be one of the books of the year that will get everyone talking ... you will have your socks knocked, nay, blown off (Stylist on 'The Good Liar')

All the ingredients are in this book...You're in safe hands with Searle's elegant writing (The Times on 'The Good Liar')

Unbearably tense (Telegraph on 'A Traitor in the Family')

'It reminded me strongly of John le Carré ... this is high praise' (Daily Mail on 'A Traitor in the Family')

Book Description

A white-knuckle tale of responsibility, betrayal and the search for atonement from the bestselling author of The Good Liar.
