Product description

Review

Praise for The Trinity Six:

‘An utterly absorbing and compelling novel. A brilliant re-imagining of events surrounding the notorious Cambridge spy-ring’ William Boyd, bestselling author of Restless

‘Sheer excitement’ Daily Telegraph

‘Often talked of as a potential heir to John le Carré, Cumming confirms here that he’s a reliably classy storyteller … an assured and richly enjoyable thriller’ Sunday Times

‘Delicate and supremely controlled, this is a spy story to be savoured, not rushed’ Daily Mail

‘None of the new generation of spy writers lives up to the standard set by Deighton, Forsyth and Le Carré. Enter Cumming, a long-awaited light at the end of a very long tunnel … This is today's spooks at their most ruthless, with Sam, a heroic if naive amateur sleuth, taking international hitmen and beautiful female agents in his stride to get to the truth. As good as Le Carré – praise indeed’ Guardian

Praise for Charles Cumming:

‘From the first page to the last it has the ring of absolute authenticity. Tautly written, cleverly plotted…it reminded me strongly of the early books of John le Carré’ Robert Harris

‘The master of the modern spy thriller’ Mail On Sunday

‘If Cumming keeps up this standard he deserves to become an institution in his own right’ The Times

About the Author

Charles Cumming was born in Scotland in 1971. He has been described as ‘the man who most successfully gets under the skin of Britain’s intelligence agencies’ (The Times). In the summer of 1995, he was approached for recruitment by the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6). A year later he moved to Montreal where he began working on a novel based on his experiences with MI6, and A Spy By Nature was published in the UK in 2001.
