What to expect

Europe is still littered with the darkest secrets of the Cold War. And the most deadly revelation of them all is about to be made…

Hard-up Russia expert Dr Sam Gaddis finally has a lead for a book that could set his career back on track. He has staggering new information about an unknown sixth member of the infamous Cambridge spy ring – a man who has evaded detection for his entire life.

But when his source suddenly dies, Gaddis is left with just shreds of his investigation, and no idea that he is already in too deep. He is threatened, betrayed, hunted – and alone. To get his life back, he must scour a continent still laced with lies to find the truth behind the Trinity Six.

Both Moscow and MI6 will use everything in their power to keep their fragile peace intact. But why murder people to hide secrets that should by now be history? Gaddis starts to understand – far too late – that he is closing in on a discovery that will shake Europe to its foundations…

Praise for The Trinity Six:

‘An utterly absorbing and compelling novel. A brilliant re-imagining of events surrounding the notorious Cambridge spy-ring’ William Boyd, bestselling author of Restless

‘Sheer excitement’ Daily Telegraph

‘Often talked of as a potential heir to John le Carré, Cumming confirms here that he’s a reliably classy storyteller … an assured and richly enjoyable thriller’ Sunday Times

‘Delicate and supremely controlled, this is a spy story to be savoured, not rushed’ Daily Mail

‘None of the new generation of spy writers lives up to the standard set by Deighton, Forsyth and Le Carré. Enter Cumming, a long-awaited light at the end of a very long tunnel … This is today's spooks at their most ruthless, with Sam, a heroic if naive amateur sleuth, taking international hitmen and beautiful female agents in his stride to get to the truth. As good as Le Carré – praise indeed’ Guardian

Praise for Charles Cumming:

‘From the first page to the last it has the ring of absolute authenticity. Tautly written, cleverly plotted…it reminded me strongly of the early books of John le Carré’ Robert Harris

‘The master of the modern spy thriller’ Mail On Sunday

‘If Cumming keeps up this standard he deserves to become an institution in his own right’ The Times
