A Choice of Enemies

A Choice of Enemies

Ted Bailey thought his days as an Intelligence Operative were long gone. He certainly wasn’t expecting to be blackmailed back into action, especially not by his own side. But then Bailey is the only person left who ever encountered Berger, the KGB’s most ruthless master-spy.

Berger is running a major operation on US soil and both the CIA and SIS are desperate to track him down. So Bailey returns to the arena of international espionage and finds that little has changed. The spy game is just the same, even after twenty-five years. There’s the same brutality. The same cold fear. The same violence and death. And the same choice of enemies.

‘The best cold war espionage novels never really lose their punch: Allbeury, like le Carré, is a master of the genre.’ – Publishers Weekly
