An excellent debut. Circa Washington DC, 1953, the CIA has a leak, Stalin has just died and a Red purge has begun. All this puts pressure on the CIA Director to find his mole quickly before all heck breaks loose. Moody and atmospheric, and with wonderful turn of phrases, I highly recommend this novel!
In this leisurely paced historical spy novel, it's 1953, the Cold War is underway, and the USSR has made dangerous inroads into the CIA, causing the deaths of several American agents. George Mueller is tasked with unearthing the double agent, code-named Protocol. But his investigation -- which includes making contact with a Soviet agent -- causes suspicion to fall on him, too. Inspired by the life of troubled spy James Speyer Kronthal, this debut is one for fans of John le Carré or Charles Cumming.
