Praise for this book

"Tense, compelling and remarkably timely... Shades of some of the greats of spy fiction - it might even be better than Charles Cumming." - Dominick Donald

"A clever, thrilling spy story that brings the feel of Eric Ambler's shadowy political intrigues right into today's world." - Jeremy Duns

"Beaumont's debut novel has such a ring of authenticity about it that it reads like an inside job... The story is gripping and the characters are all well drawn. Highly recommended." - Alex Gerlis

"A Spy Alone is as intricate as it is absorbing, as fantastically entertaining as it is disturbingly plausible, and is delivered with the confidence of a writer who knows how to handle the highest stakes." - Tim Glister

"Beaumont ... catches the zeitgeist of (le Carre) .... He conveys all the world of espionage with relish, in its murky motives and surveillance techniques and the book races along and makes for a stunning debut." - Maxim Jakubowski

"Beaumont takes the intrigue, atmosphere and subterfuge of the Cambridge Spies and brings it bang up to date with a what-if tale of an Oxford spy ring at the service of modern-day populist politicians and malevolent regimes. A chilling story that feels all too plausible today, written with extraordinary insight." - Chris Lloyd

"Propulsive, authentic and eye-opening, A Spy Alone is clearly written by someone with first-hand experience of the secret world." - James Wolff
