What did you like most about An Accidental Spy?

A relatively historic setting for an entirely modern story. A repressive State, civil war, intrigue, domestic violence, romance, and a hint of sex in suburbia. In current terms, Syria/Iraq, politics, the Archers and any tabloid. Jolyn Jones has constructed a fascinating tale that makes compelling listening.

An ordinary suburban solicitor following in her father’s footsteps in the unexciting world of wills, house purchases and petty crime is catapulted into the world of James Bond, and for aficionados of Dennis Wheatley’s fictional tales based on historical fact of his derring-do hero, Roger Brook.

Jolyn ‘s geographical and historical background in which she sets our heroine’s entirely plausible adventures is impeccably researched.
