Weary. The third spy novel by Charles Cumming to feature MI6 agent Thomas Kell is titled, A Divided Spy. Fans of the series will understand why Tom seems weary over the course of the latest novel: his twenty years as a spy have been a roller coaster of highs and lows, going from hero to goat. Tom is disillusioned and distraught and grieving over a personal loss. In the latest novel he is drawn back into the action and breaks out of his lethargy. The pace of the novel is quick, the prose well-written, and the continued development of a complex character will reward those readers who enjoy character driven fiction.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
