Maxim Jakubowski recommends

A Spy Alone (2023)
(Oxford Spy Ring, book 1)
Charles Beaumont
"Beaumont ... catches the zeitgeist of (le Carre) .... He conveys all the world of espionage with relish, in its murky motives and surveillance techniques and the book races along and makes for a stunning debut."
thumb
Neom (2022)
(Central Station)
Lavie Tidhar
"Always expect the unexpected with Lavie Tidhar, and this welcome return to the sprawling space-operatic world of Central Station delivers oodles of poetry, action, memorable characters, wonderfully bizarre landscapes and wild imagination. No two books by Tidhar are ever the same, but each is a revelation."
thumb
The Matchmaker (2022)
Paul Vidich
"Vidich is fast establishing himself as one of the rightful heirs of acknowledged espionage masters like John Le Carre, Robert Littell or Charles McCarry."
