"Renowned author Kit Carradine is approached by an MI6 officer with a seemingly straightforward assignment: track down a mysterious woman hiding somewhere in the exotic, perilous city of Marrakesh. But when Carradine learns the woman is a dangerous fugitive with ties to international terrorism, the glamour of being a spy is soon tainted by fear and betrayal. Lara Bartok is a leading figure in Resurrection, a violent revolutionary movement whose brutal attacks on prominent right-wing public figures have spread hatred and violence across the world. Her disappearance ignites a race between warring intelligence services desperate to find her -- at any cost. But as Carradine edges closer to the truth, he finds himself drawn to this brilliant, beautiful, and profoundly complex woman." -- Dust jacket flap.

Charles Cumming brings a fresh energy to the spy thriller genre. This stand-alone volume stars a quiet novelist (alter ego?) dragged into a world of international espionage; the style, as the protagonist describes his own writing, is a middle path between the over-action of Ludlum and the more intricate pacing of Le Carre. The story proceeds with forthright homage to Casablanca, the Man Who Knew Too Much, and Frederick Forysth's memoir, but all are updated: this is Hitchcock in the age of GPS and AirBNB, the age of WhatsApp and satellite surveillance.
