Publisher's Summary

From the author of Legacy, now a major BBC film, comes a brilliant new novel for fans of le Carré, Graham Greene, and Charles Cumming.

During a time of political disruption and rising antinuclear sentiment, MI5 discovers that an extremist fringe group, Action Against Austerity, appears to have links to an established political party while planning sabotage using something or someone called Deep Blue. Banned from investigating British political parties, the head of MI5 seeks advice from Charles Thoroughgood, his opposite number in MI6.

Agreeing to help unofficially with the case, Charles must delve deep into his own past, to an unresolved Cold War case linked to his private life. Using the past as a key to the present, he soon finds himself in a race against time to prevent a plot which is politically nuclear.

Authoritative and packed with in-depth knowledge, Deep Blue is a gripping new spy thriller from a master of the genre.

    "Desperate drivel - Avoid at all costs!"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This may satisfy a teenager but it's not for adults


    What could Alan Judd have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    He could have created a believable plot and populated it with 3 dimensional characters. He could have written a book that made me want to care


    Did Michael Fenner do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

    Yes, on the whole however there were times when he mixed up the voices and used a femail voice for one of the male characters


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It was only 6 hrs


    Any additional comments?

    Although the characterization was passable, it sounded more like Wallace and Grommit than an MI-5 / MI-6 novel. The whole idea that "M" would go driving around the countryside in a classic car chasing a terrorist cell is laughable!
