(1975)
A novel by

 
 
Carswell is a British Intelligence agent with a tarnished reputation, kept out of the way in Madrid for the past twelve years.

Suddenly he's thrown into action, tasked with shadowing a hired killer in what Carswell is told is a crucial assassination plot - only, undisclosed to him, the target is being protected by the CIA and the British only want him located, not killed.

After a bizarre and gruesome series of events in which he is cut off completely from contact with London, Carswell believes it is his sole duty to carry out this assassination.

Sought by the Spanish police, hunted by the combined fury of the CIA and British Intelligence, and hampered by the presence of a young French prostitute, he will stop at nothing to carry out his assignment.

But every step he takes is sealing his own fate and compromising his country ...

The Robespierre Serial is a taut and authentic espionage thriller, full of grim violence and shattering intrigue.
