The British Cross
The New "November Man" Novel
by Bill Granger
Publisher: Crown Publishers, Inc.
Devereaux, the November Man, returns in a masterful new thriller by Bill Granger, the critically acclaimed author of Schism and The Shattered Eye.
The British Cross finds the November Man "on ice" in frozen Helsinki. He has been waiting endlessly, patiently, for a would-be Russian defector to deliver information -- names, proofs, clues, anything -- that would justify the risks of his defection. No one back in the States is anxious to bring in a defector who might be a double agent, and so far this one can't prove his worth.
The November Man finally wrings the goods out of the Russian: one name -- Tomas Crohan.
But who is Tomas Crohan? And why does the mere mention of his name send the CIA, the KGB and the British Secret Service into what seems to be an international conspiracy of silence? More important, why has the November Man been ordered to drop the case, forget the defector . . . and forget the name Tomas Crohan?
The November Man wants to know. So does the intrepid journalist Rita Macklin, who despite the very fresh memory of her last encounter with the November Man, and his betrayal of her, is about to be drawn back into his life and his heart. And so they slip once again outside of the system to follow a trail that began during the Second World War. It will lead them from Helsinki to Washington, D.C., to Ireland and Great Britain, until it dead-ends in a psychiatric hospital in Leningrad where a man names Tomas Crohan is about to be given his freedom for the first time in thirty-eight years.
Here is the November Man at his very best, unraveling a plot so complex that every clue leads to its own contradiction, every patriot is a traitor, all information is disinformation and even the liars are trapped in a truth known to only one man: Tomas Crohan.
And not even Tomas Crohan knows who Tomas Crohan is,
