Andrew Williams has established himself as a master of the intelligent political/historical thriller. The Suicide Club, set partly at Field Marshal Haig's headquarters in 1917 and partly in German occupied Beligum, is his best novel yet: gripping and disturbing
If a good spy novel needs anything, it's uncertainty, a hall of mirrors; and Witchfinder delivers it in spades. Great stuff.
Praise for The Suicide Club
Every bit as cynical in tone as Mick Herron's Slough House mob... a painstakingly recreated account of the cold war's darkest days
[...] the most authentic spy novel ever written [...] an utterly fascinating account of a very dangerous time in British history when elements of the Secret State were out of control.
Meticulously researched and classily written . . . offers a distinctive perspective
The war-damaged Innes is a strong, sympathetic character and the meticulously researched background is fascinating
Williams has become one of Britain's most accomplished thriller writers. Rich in the politics of war and based on spectacular research into the reality,The Suicide Club delivers a delicate portrait of the intricacies of war, while never neglecting the bravery.
