A novel by

 

"A Spy by Nature is a wonderfully assured first novel. From the first page to the last it has the ring of absolute authenticity. Tautly written, cleverly plotted ... it reminded me strongly of the early books of John le Carre."
Robert Harris


A brilliant debut from a writer set to be the bestselling heir to Len Deighton and John Le Carré. Frustrated in his ambition, Alec Milius is a young man more comfortable with deceit than the truth. So when he's unexpectedly approached by MI6, he believes he's found the perfect outlet for his talents. But, operating alone within a complex web of bluff, counter-bluff, paranoia and betrayal, the difference between the truth and a lie can be the difference between life and death. And Alec's soon having trouble telling them apart... Taut, authentic and compelling, A SPY BY NATURE is the calling card of a major new thriller writer.
