The Book

A missing scientist. A stolen breakthrough. A desperate spy.

It's 1961 and the white heat of the Space Race is making the Cold War even colder.

Richard Knox is a man with secrets, and not just because he's a secret agent. He's been hung out to dry by someone in MI5, and the only way to save his career could destroy his world.

Meanwhile in a closed city outside Leningrad, brilliant physicist Irina Valera makes a discovery that will change the world forever, and faces an unimaginable personal tragedy.

With Britain's own latest espionage breakthrough stolen, and its top spy trapped in a mysterious coma, Knox must find a new ally to help him uncover the traitor in MI5's ranks - Abey Bennett, one of the CIA's few female recruits who's determined to prove herself whatever the cost.

As the age of global surveillance dawns, three powers will battle for dominance, and three people will fight to survive…
