Product description

Review

Authentic, taut and compelling. Brookes is the real deal ― Charles Cumming

Cements Brookes' reputation as a superb spy novelist and draws comparisons with other espionage heavyweights including John le Carre. ― Sun

This would make a superb television spy drama. I really didn't want it to end. A terrific heart-thumping spy thriller. ― Northern Crime Reviews

Brookes shows that his impressive debut was no fluke, and readers will look forward to Mangan's next adventure ― Publishers Weekly

Brookes's expertly orchestrated novel couldn't be more topical . . . exhilaratingly shows how readily the old-school international spy thriller can be retooled for the era of globalisation, the internet and a superpower's emergence ― Sunday Times

Brookes knows modern China, he seemingly knows the British secret service and, most importantly, he knows how to tell a good story. The splendid result is this rich, can't-put-it-down thriller. A terrific read. ― Joseph Kanon - author of The Good German and Leaving Berlin

Adam Brookes is the new Le Carré - without question this is the best modern spy novel I have ever read . . . Read this. It's perfect. ― Manda Scott

Brookes' second novel is a multipronged spy thriller that fires on all cylinders. A smarter or more exciting mystery likely won't be released this year. ― Kirkus (starred review)

A spy thriller for the 21st century ― Sunday Post

Impressively authentic, immaculately researched and written with true quality and style, Spy Games is one of the best spy thrillers you will read this year ― Lancashire Evening Post

Review

A classic spy thriller packed with tension and detail, brilliantly paced. - Peter James on Night Heron

Brookes knows modern China, he seemingly knows the British secret service and, most importantly, he knows how to tell a good story. The splendid result is this rich, can't-put-it-down thriller. A terrific read. - Joseph Kanon - author of The Good German and Leaving Berlin

The best British spy novel debut in years - Daily Telegraph on Night Heron

Night Heron reeks with verisimilitude in its settings and atmosphere, and is accompanied by a cleverly plotted action-filled story of Anglo-Chinese espionage - The Times on Night Heron

The BBC's former China correspondent joins the ranks of John le Carre and Frederick Forsyth with a laser-sharp Beijing spy thriller . . . Brookes arrives a full formed talent, with a complete mastery of the genre - Daily Express on Night Heron

Superior espionage - The Sun on Night Heron

An intriguing, skilful and taut novel...elegantly plotted and with a piercing eye for detail - Daily Mail on Night Heron

Debut of the month is Adam Brookes's accomplished Night Heron - The Sunday Times on Night Heron
