The award-winning debut thriller from the bestselling author of Kolymsky Heights. "Quite simply the best thriller writer around." (Spectator).

Nicolas Whistler is young, bored and in debt. When an opportunity to make some money arises, he can't turn it down.

He is sent to Prague to carry out a simple assignment, but he soon finds himself trapped between the secret police and the clutches of the mysterious Vlasta.

Whether he likes it or not, Nicolas is now a spy. "Fast-moving, exciting, often extraordinarily funny." (Sunday Times). "Brilliant. Don't miss it." (Observer).
