Europe is still littered with the darkest secrets of the Cold War. And the most deadly revelation of them all is about to be made…Hard-up Russia expert Dr Sam Gaddis finally has a lead for a book that could set his career back on track. He has staggering new information about an unknown sixth member of the infamous Cambridge spy ring – a man who has evaded detection for his entire life.
But when his source suddenly dies, Gaddis is left with just shreds of his investigation, and no idea that he is already in too deep. He is threatened, betrayed, hunted – and alone. To get his life back, he must scour a continent still laced with lies to find the truth behind the Trinity Six.
Both Moscow and MI6 will use everything in their power to keep their fragile peace intact. But why murder people to hide secrets that should by now be history? Gaddis starts to understand – far too late – that he is closing in on a discovery that will shake Europe to its foundations…
"The master of the modern spy thriller." (Mail On Sunday)
"Cumming has clearly researched widely and his portrayal of life among China's louche foreign community is particularly convincing, if depressing. This novel adds to his reputation as one of the UK's best young espionage writers." (Daily Telegraph)

Could not stop listening
The plot blended history of the Cambridge Five skillfully wih fiction. The novel is well constructed and suspenseful. This guy is definitely high on my espionage list, along with LeCarre and Daniel Silva.
Good narrator - subtle use of accents. Very listenable.
Brilliant thriller perfectly narrated
