A debut espionage novel in the style of Alan Furst and
John le Carré, An Honorable Man is a chilling Cold War
spy thriller set in 1950s Washington, D.C.
Washington D.C., 1953. The Cold War is heating up:
McCarthyism, with all its fear and demagoguery, is raging
in the nation’s capital, and Joseph Stalin’s death has
left a dangerous power vacuum in the Soviet Union.
The CIA, meanwhile, is reeling from a double agent within
their midst. Someone is selling secrets to the Soviets,
compromising missions around the globe. Undercover agents
have been assassinated, and anti-Communist plots are
being cut short in ruthlessly efficient fashion. The CIA
director knows any news of the traitor, whose code name
is Protocol, would be a national embarrassment and
compromise the entire agency.
George Mueller seems to be the perfect man to help find
the mole: Yale-educated; extensive experience running
missions in Eastern Europe; an operative so dedicated to
his job that it left his marriage in tatters. The
Director trusts him. Mueller, though, has secrets of his
own, and as he digs deeper into the case, making contact
with a Soviet agent, suspicion begins to fall on him as
well. Until Protocol is found, no one can be trusted, and
everyone is at risk.
