An excellent spy novel that reminds me of Graeme Green. 'Double- crossing' spys that assassinate friends and foes alike, abound in this quite pro-British novel.
First I would have to say that the author and narrator are the best double act for audible listening. The writing style is fantastic but made so much more intense and believable by the narrator Paul Panting, first class.
If you like a book that has strong characters, is fast paced and actioned packed then look no further. I would recommend reading Dead Spy Running first as Games Traitors Play is a follow up with many of the fine characters from the first book appearing. The lead character, Daniel Marchant, is perfectly formed and as an MI6 officer really shows that getting the job done is not always about being Gung Ho. The interaction with characters and their individual traits really makes this a good read (or listen). The twists and turns are well planned and played out, some you'll think you'll know but not always.... great suspense.
I've really enjoyed both books, I hope this is the first two of a series. I've read quite a few in this genre and can honestly say these are at the top of my 'top 10, reading list.
Jon Stock and Paul Panting more of the same please

I enjoyed Jon Stock's Dead Spy Running and I thought this would be a good follow up, but was sadly disappointed. Far fetched with too many loopholes and a plot that really began to take the biscuit. I felt this was a wasted purchase and will certainly not venture into the third instalment.
