Brush Pass Spy Book Review

Agent in Berlin Synopsis (Waterstones)

We can’t have agents who are shrinking violets, can we? Look, Barney, when you’ve been around spies for as long as I have you’ll appreciate that they’re all flawed characters in some way, otherwise they wouldn’t be in this game.

Ordinary people with blameless and straightforward lives tend not to become spies. The best ones are people who’ve been tested by life in one way or the other. People with complications in their lives, who’ve had to live and survive in what I call the shadows of life – they’re the type we’re after

Agent in Berlin by Alex Gerlis

To live among wolves, first, you must become one… An unmissable new spy thriller from best-selling master of the genre, Alex Gerlis.

War is coming to Europe.

British spymaster Barnaby Allen begins recruiting a network of agents in Germany. With diplomatic relations quickly unravelling, this pack of spies soon comes into their own: the horse-loving German at home in Berlin's underground; the young American sports journalist; the mysterious Luftwaffe officer; the Japanese diplomat and the most unlikely one of all… the SS officer's wife.

Despite constant danger and the ever-present threats of discovery and betrayal, Allen's network unearths top-secret plans for a new German fighter plane – and a truly devastating intelligence prize… an audacious Japanese plan to attack the United States. But can they prove it?

The race is on.
