Like Alan Furth and Phillip Kerr? Long for Graham Greene?

You'll love 'My Beautiful Spy', a classic spy thriller of World War Two from internationally bestselling author, Colin Falconer.

When war comes to England in 1939, Nick Davis is far away in the Balkans, posted to the British Embassy. But Nick Davis is not a diplomat; he is a spy. Far away from the bombs, he is soon at the very heart of the battle for Europe.

TURKEY STAYS OUT OF THE WAR, AND ISTANBUL BECOMES A DEADLY CITY OF SPIES.

When he recruits the mistress of a German Abwehr colonel, he doesn't foresee falling in love with her.

But who is Daniela Simonici? And who is she really spying for?

But it is only when Germany is in full retreat that the real game gets underway - and the stakes for Europe, for the world, could not be higher.

'My Beautiful Spy' is a searing love story of byzantine intrigue, where two lovers play out the final moves in a deadly game, masterminded in Berlin, Moscow and London.

WHAT REVIEWERS ARE SAYING ABOUT 'MY BEAUTIFUL SPY'
"Top notch WWII historical fiction. The story weaves an intensely personal story against the backdrop of espionage and war." *****

"This book held my interest from page one until the end. I love the way Colin Falconer can bring the 40s to life. You forget that the people you are so worried about are characters in a book. They become real, and you care what happens to them. This is the magic of Colin Falconer. Don't miss out on any of his books." *****
