The Agent Runner

(2014)
A novel by

 
Ed found it difficult to explain why he felt such a strong allegiance to Britain, perhaps because he found it difficult to define what it meant to be British.

British by birth, foreign by descent and agnostic by conviction, Edward Henry Malik is an MI6 agent-runner.

For four years he has been running an agent codenamed Nightingale inside the ISI, Pakistan's Hydra-headed spying agency. Then, in the aftermath of the death of Osama bin Laden, Nightingale is unmasked and Ed's world dramatically falls apart.

Dismissed from MI6 and with his reputation in tatters, Ed returns to his roots in the immigrant enclave of Whitechapel in London's East End. He finds a job at a freight forwarding office and unexpectedly falls in love with the proprietor's daughter. It seems as if he has finally found respite from his demons.

But you can't escape your past. Ed knows too much and he has come to the attention of the Hidden Hand - Pakistan's legendary spy of spies - Major-General Javid Aslam Khan.

From the teeming city of Lahore to the anarchic tribal areas bordering Afghanistan, with a plot to detonate the dirtiest bomb imaginable, The Agent Runner carves a dramatic arc across modern Pakistan and reaches a thunderous climax in the mountains of the Hindu Kush.

Praise for A Loyal Spy:

"It's sprawling, violent and contemporary, with whiffs of authenticity that lift it above the crowd" The Spectator

"Conway has concocted a credible, and wholly cynical, tale of dirt, death and double-dealing" The Times
