Publisher's Summary

Dieter Hess, an aged spy, is dead, and John Bachelor, his MI5 handler, is in deep, deep trouble. Death has revealed that the deceased had been keeping a secret second bank account - and there's only ever one reason a spy has a secret second bank account. The question of whether he was a double agent must be resolved, and its answer may undo an entire career's worth of spy secrets.

    "Mick herron and Sean Barrett a marriage made in heaven"

    A very entertaining short story. I couldn't resist this one and it didn't disappoint. Just look on it as a taster to a brilliant series of 'Spook Books'

    Story
    "Terrific teaser"

    How affirming to listen to a very well written part of a tale than an interminable hodge podge of mangled plot lines which I have recently endured.
    Funny, often lyrical and always requiring full attention, the author has done it again.

    Needless to say, the reader can only wish that we could have had "the next part" too. It would be nice to see Ms Taverner trip over.
    But by the time this new recruit became a plot line, the team at Slough House would be gone.

    Mr Barrett retains the title of the A1 reader of novels.

    "disappointing"

    I must have fallen asleep as while waiting for the story to get started it finished.

    "Short story"

    Bought it under the impression it was a book but it is a short story I felt short changed. Sharp practice will not read another such.

    "Narrator Sean Barrett gives perfect measured performance"

    Particularly of Jackson Lamb. Consistency essential to representing so eccentric a character is managed and maintained with aplomb.
