After a string of botched assignments for MI6 in Berlin, David Perceval is being sent home. Even his final mission before leaving ― the defection of a Soviet scientist ― goes badly wrong, as the coldest winter for 30 years descends on Europe.

With transport out of Berlin impossible, and the KGB searching everywhere for their lost scientist, Perceval must improvise a deadly game of cat and mouse through the frozen city to keep the Russians at bay, and deliver his own unique brand of revenge!


My two-bits:

This is a prequel to The Coldest City with a focus on a character found in the first story. It captures that noir spy world in black and white shadows splashed on each page.

I was missing Lorraine from the first book but this did well in twists and turns and twists again.
