Starred Review for A Foreign Country


Betrayal and conspiracy reign in A FOREIGN COUNTRY, Charles Cummings' latest stand-alone spy thriller after THE TRINITY SIX.

Amelia Levene, the first female Chief of MI6, has disappeared just weeks before she is due to take over as the most influential spy in Europe. Desperate to find her and keep her disappearance a secret, Britain’s top intelligence agents turn to one of their own: disgraced MI6 officer Thomas Kell.

"Cumming is particularly skilled at sketching his characters, most notably Kell (a classically reluctant spy) and Weldon, who’s haunted by personal demons central to the elaborate puzzle of a story. The elegant prose will appeal to those who don’t usually read spy fiction." -Publishers Weekly (starred review)

A FOREIGN COUNTRY is nominated for The 2012 CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Award!

This book will be available in the U.S. in August from St. Martin's Press.
