Publisher's Summary

Safe houses and secret message drops, double crosses and defections - it sounds like the stuff of sophisticated espionage, but these agents are only schoolboys engaged in harmless play. Not that John Creevey knows this. To him, the messages he decodes with painstaking care are the communications of dangerous and evil men, and as he comes face to face with the fact of his beloved wife Jennifer's defection, he begins to see a way to get back at the man she left him for.

What a gem this is! My favorite Rendell; the characters and plotting are superb, the suspense mounts to a smashing denouement.

Talking to Strange Men

Too strange for me. Strange kids, strange John. It was difficult to get into the story and once I was there, disliked the strange story as well.
