The Spanish Game
by Charles Cumming
Alec Milius is living in Spain since his disastrous ending as a British Intelligence officer a few years earlier. He still keeps to the old spy ways and paranoia, though, expecting enemies behind every corner and sensing conspiracy with every unusual personal or professional contact. This life in exile is suddenly changed when a casual meeting with a Basque politician turns deadly and Alec finds himself embroiled in international espionage once again. A first rate spy novel in the ranks of Le Carre and Ludlum!
