The spying game won’t leave Will Flemyng alone. James Naughtie’s ex-spook is now British ambassador in Washington and he’s embroiled again in a story from his past that put lives at stake and rekindles for him perhaps the most dangerous but fulfilling relationship he’s ever known. Set at a political turning point in the 1980s, The Spy Across the Water tells interlocking stories from the Cold War and the Northern Ireland Troubles in a novel described by Lee Child as ‘the best kind of thriller – intelligent, resonant and suspenseful… and plausible’.
