Spy Trap

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

In a shady world where no-one is what they seem, Richard Brodick should know better than to sleep with the enemy …

The year is 1992. As a seasoned British agent, Richard Brodick now occupies a respectable – in as far as any spy can be respectable – position in the UK’s Secret Intelligence Service. The isolation and the danger don’t bother him; he survived far worse in childhood, and the respect of his bosses is sufficient.

But when a British man dies in a Chinese hotel, Brodick finds himself face-to-face once more with the ruthless and ambitious Chen Meilin, better known as Fang, codename DRAGON. Their working relationship both pleases and torments Brodick, but in this case he cannot operate without her.

As they delve deeper into the events surrounding Roger Peacock’s death, Brodick and Fang uncover corruption and betrayal at the heart of China’s communist regime. But as events unfold and their own conflicting interests, hopes and ambitions collide, it is not clear that either of them can survive, this time …

Spy Trap is the final book in John Fullerton’s well-received Brodick spy thriller trilogy. It will please readers of the previous books in the series (Spy Game and Spy Dragon) along with fans of Le Carré, Deighton et al.

Praise for John Fullerton’s Brodick spy thriller trilogy novels:

‘[Spy Game is] A first-rate tale, with all the authority of first-hand experience’ - Luke Jennings, author of the Killing Eve series

‘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

‘A thriller written by an insider of how cruel and cunning the espionage world can be. Read it’ - John Sweeney, writer and broadcaster
