Sole Agent

(The second book in the Peter Craig series)
A novel by

70s Lisbon is a nest of spies. Amanda is a mass of contradictions. Craig is running out of time.

A British diplomat's daughter is missing, and security specialist Peter Craig must track her down before a scandal erupts.

The case soon descends into a web of murder and espionage, with the KGB and the secret police both hot on Craig's heels, an international incident brewing, and a dangerous case of conflicting loyalties. Will Craig live to regret helping the Embassy save face?
