Former MI6 agent Kate Henderson returns in the series for “fans of cerebral spycraft in the vein of le Carré” from the international bestselling author (Publishers Weekly).
Attempting to rebuild her shattered life on vacation in the South of France, former MI6 operative Kate Henderson receives an unexpected and most unwelcome visit from an old adversary: the UK Prime Minister. He has an extraordinary story to tell—and he needs her help.
A Russian agent has come forward with news that the PM has been the victim of the greatest misinformation play in the history of MI6. It’s run out of a special KGB unit that exists for one purpose alone: to process the intelligence from “Agent Dante,” a mole right at the heart of MI6 in London.
Against her better judgement, Kate is forced back into the fray in a top-secret, deeply flawed and dangerous investigation. But now she’s damaged goods. Her one-time allies no longer trust her. And neither do her enemies.
Praise for Double Agent
“Bradby masterfully combines textured psychological drama with a rip-roaring plot that boasts several dizzying switchbacks along the way to a genuinely shocking conclusion.” —Booklist (starred review)
“An enjoyably labyrinthine tale with a light touch and the odd naughty satirical echo.” —Sunday Express (UK)
“The character of Kate is just terrific. She’s honest, brave and whip smart. First and foremost, Kate wants to do the right thing, but in the murky world of 21st-century espionage it is not always clear what that is. If any of you are missing the Cold War espionage novels of the 1970s and 1980s, this series is for you.” —Deadly Pleasures
