Thriller Spy | Historical
In the fourth and final installment of David Downing’s
spy series, Jack McColl is sent to Soviet Russia, where
the civil war is coming to an end. The Bolsheviks have
won but the country is in ruins. With the hopes
engendered by the revolution hanging by a thread, plots
and betrayals abound.
London, 1921: Ex–Secret Service spy Jack McColl is in
prison serving time for assaulting a cop. McColl has been
embittered by the Great War; he feels betrayed by the
country that had sent so many young men to die
needlessly. He can’t stomach spying for the British
Empire anymore. He’s also heartbroken. The love of his
life, radical journalist Caitlin Hanley, parted ways with
him three years earlier so she could offer her services
to the Communist revolution in Moscow.
Then his former Secret Service boss offers McColl the
chance to escape his jail sentence if he takes a
dangerous and unofficial assignment in Russia, where
McColl is already a wanted man. He would be spying on
other spies, sniffing out the truth about MI5 meddling in
a high-profile assassination plot. The target is someone
McColl cares about and respects. The MI5 agent involved
is someone he loathes. With the knowledge that he may be
walking into a death trap, McColl sets out for Moscow,
the scene of his last heartbreak. Little does he know
that his mission will throw him back into Caitlin’s life—
or that her husband will be one of the men he is trying
to hunt down.
