A Colder War

Mole. Fans of spy fiction should be satisfied after reading Charles Cumming’s latest novel, A Colder War. Protagonist Tom Kell (introduced in an earlier novel) took the fall in a torture scandal and his reputation as an MI6 agent has been damaged. When the head of station in Turkey is found dead, Amanda Levene, the head of MI6, suspects there may be a mole wreaking havoc on espionage operations in that part of the world. Levene recruits Kell to try to get to the bottom of things, which are complicated by the fact that the dead spy was her lover. I enjoyed character exposition and development, plot momentum and the interesting details of espionage. I was entertained by this novel and my attention remained focused throughout the book. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase A Colder War from
