'Allbeury's people are real in the sense that Greene's or Maugham's are.' - H.R.F. Keating
A collection of short stories from the author described by The Guardian as 'the most consistently inventive of our novelists of espionage'.
From crime and mystery stories, to tales of Cold War intrigue and more, this volume of sixteen short stories is a must for fans and a fantastic introduction to one of our best thriller writers.
