James Holland recommends
Coward on the Beach (2007)
(Dick Coward, book 1)
James Delingpole
"Extremely funny... very moving. The research is exemplary, and like the best historical fiction, woven seamlessly into the narrative. Truly compelling."
In Love and War (2014)
Alex Preston
"Gripping, beautiful, tragic and shocking."
The Partisan (2022)
Patrick Worrall
"A taut, sophisticated, and hugely satisfying thriller. With a multi-layered and ingenious plot, this is a superb and immensely enjoyable read from an excitingly fresh and original new voice. Wartime resistance, Cold War espionage, a world on the cusp of nuclear catastrophe and a cast of deftly drawn and believable characters combine to make this a hugely compelling, unputdownable and fast-paced read that takes the reader on a journey from the forests of Lithuania, to the Kremlin and back streets of Moscow, to the jazz bars of early 1960s London and the colleges of Cambridge to the bleak realities of the GDR and post-war Vienna."
