Public Murders

Maj Kirsten's was a public murder. Good-looking, blonde, Swedish, a tourist, she was found stabbed to death and mutilated in one of Chicago's public parks. That got the headlines, put the pressure on the police as politicians and elected officials demanded an equally public solution. They got it of course: a wino, sleeping rough, arrested and charged. The publicwas reassured. Till the next killing - young, blonde, good-looking, mutilated. And the next - the most public of all. Chicago, sweltering in a heatwave, had become a city hot with fear, crying out for relief. That was when Karen Kovac, young, blonde, good-looking, a police officer, was sent out onto the sweating, heat-soaked streets. A decoy to entice a maniac.

'Granger has combined Ian Fleming, John Le Carré and Trevanian in one heady mix' New York Times START READING THE NOVEMBER MAN SERIES NOW! Then go on to read the rest, you won't regret it.The armistice has been all but signed. As one master operative puts it, "The Cold War has lost its Freon." And as people all over the world rejoice, America's intelligence profession prepares to cut back operations. With the old East-West rivalry gone, the planet has no further need for spies. So it would seem. Fortunately, Devereaux - the spy they call November - knows better. Even now, he finds himself and his implacable nemesis locked in a deadly battle. The backdrop is a secret war of terrorism waged by an insidious mastermind combining the bloodiest back-alley tactics of Irish republicanism with the sleek financial machinations of Wall Street. And exploits them both.For Devereaux, this mission becomes more than another assignment reluctantly undertaken for his long-standing employer, R Section. It's deeply personal: an assassin has struck at Rita Macklin, the journalist whose love he has at last begun to accept and reciprocate. Behind the attacks is a man who has proven to have many identities and many lives, a killer without conscience or country, now seeking his final revenge against the November Man. Now Devereaux has but a single goal: kill Henry McGee, before he can strike again.'America's best spy novelist' Ed McBain Loved this? Read The Last Good German next . . .
