    'Note-perfect, multi-layered, rugged as a T-34 tank. Grimwood is about to become your new favourite thriller writer' Independent

    1986, the Cold War is thawing . . .

    But not for British intelligence officer Major Tom Fox. Smuggled into East Berlin, Fox's orders are clear: repatriate a remorseful defector. They are less clear over what to do when his mission is compromised.

    Trapped in East Berlin, hunted by an army of Stasi agents and wanted for murder on both sides of the Wall, Fox must stay free and get out alive.

    To do both he must discover who sabotaged his mission - and why . . .
