I would describe this as Maisie Dobbs with an edge, but I worry that might turn off some potential audience members for this great read. So what it has: a strong main character - Tom, a former British Secret Service Agent who has retired at a young age to the coast of France; a great setting; a handful of Russians; some Italians; a few sexual escapades; and history of Europe between the two world wars. A great thriller for your summer.
Mark Mills, bestselling author of Amagansett, The Savage Garden, and The Information Officer, is renowned for blending riveting history, rich atmosphere, and thrilling suspense. Now, in House of the Hunted, Mills deftly unfolds a story of betrayal, love, and the inescapable pull of the past as an ex-spy finds himself drawn back into his treacherous former life.
