Spy Game

(The first book in the Brodick Cold War Thriller series)
A novel by

‘A first-rate tale, with all the authority of first-hand experience.' - Luke Jennings, author of the 'Killing Eve' series

February 1981. The Cold War is in full swing. Richard Brodick decides to follow in his father’s footsteps, joining Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service.

As a contract ‘head agent’ based in Pakistan, Brodick’s job is to train Afghans to capture video of the war against the Soviets. However, he finds himself in a murky world of blurred lines and conflicting stories, where he cannot trust anything he has been told, by anyone.

What he had thought would be an adventure spying on the Soviets and their Afghan communist allies turns sour when he's ordered to kill his best friend. Will he betray his country or his friend? Which side will he choose?

'Fullerton's fine, action-packed book outdoes vintage Le Carré...' - John Phillips, The Italian Insider

'Fullerton is unmatchable at the details of the frontline spy game, the very believable characters engaged in it, and the cold-eyed, cold-hearted decisions that those who intend to win the game have to take. It is not a game for the faint-hearted.' – Russell James – Shots Magazine
