The cover may have some limited signs of wear but the pages are clean, intact and the spine remains undamaged. Allbeury proficiently puts together the story by starting it off with a highly intelligent soviet scientist taking a job in Siberia with her german speaking daughter who would work for an elderly lecturer living just down the road. The young gifted girl gets involved in parapsychological experiments which the CIA gets a whiff of and then things start to go terribly wrong.

Maverick CIA killers are on the loose in Cold War era West Germany. Violent sabotage and subversion is being perpetrated behind the Iron Curtain. A right-wing terror-organisation with connections stretching back to the Nazi era is suspected. David Mills had long since left behind his life as an Intelligence Officer, or so he thought. As the British and American Intelligence agencies struggle to combat the mounting fascist threat, Mills is pulled back into the murky world of International espionage by a figure from his past.

Ted Allbeury, who has died aged 88, was the most productive of the internationally recognised spy writers . Len Deighton writes: No one knew Ted very well. I saw him only now and again. And yet Ted was one of my close friends and I believe that he also felt close to me.

Ted Allbeury, who has died aged 88, was the most productive of the internationally recognised spy writers of recent years, at one point writing four novels in one year under his own name, plus others under the pen names Richard Butler and Patrick Kelly. His books were among those most borrowed from public libraries, and one year he received one penny more in public lending rights payments than romantic novelist Barbara Cartland.

There was a saying along time ago during World War Two that, "The only good German was a dead German". Perhaps, it's also rings true that in cold war East Germany, that the only good Englishman was a dead Englishman but, you'll have to decide that for yourself. It was certainly true, however, that there were plenty of spies hanging around East Germany during the cold war days that's for sure: The SIS (English), the KGB (Russian), the Stazi (East Germans) and even the CIA (Americans) all had a vested interested there. It all makes for a cauldron of bluff and counter-bluff in a game where if you lose, it could cost you your life. Who can you trust? Anyone? Who are your allies, when even the CIA are doing deals and trading secrets with the KGB and often ignoring the the SIS who were supposed to be their allies!

In this instalment by Allbeury, he writes about Kruschev having secret talks with Kennedy in 1961, leaked confidential KGB files to the CIA mixed with very believable character's amongst the sleaze, vice and violence in a grimly set East Germany. There are not many novels that this reader could not put down, but this one of them. An excellent espionage thriller that has all the hallmarks of a classic. It remained firmly with this reader long after it was finished. Those blue and green capsules that glinted in the afternoon sun will always be remembered ~ and not always for the right reasons! There have been only two other novels that chilled this reader well after the novel was finished. They were: Markus Zusak's, "The Book Thief" and Gerald Seymour's, "Home Run" but each for completely different reasons. This story was like Shakespeare's, "Romeo and Juliet" because like the play, this story too was a tragedy. Well, that's how it ended and that's a common theme for a great espionage story. (Think of any early John le Carre or Len Deighton and you think of tragic or at least pyrrhic endings in all of them). Without giving away the ending too much, however, our chivalrous hero who had been through so much, finally gets the girl and, this reader thought, would finally find happiness. Yet, in the final scene he his brutally betrayed. So feel free to download it on your Kindle or if you come across it at a second hand bookshop (if anyone still goes to those) buy it and read it. But, read it and weep! This reader liked this story so much because it was the first Allbeury novel read in a long time that just knocked his socks off! 5 Stars!!!
