A Vengeance of Spies

(2019)
A Novella by

 
 
My dear Elsa -
You are grieving and I am sorry, but there are things you need to know...
Because this is not only a confession. It is an accusation.
So, in case you get no further, here is the bald fact.

I killed your grandfather.

War hides many secrets and some of them are better kept. But the secret of Hut Ten was never that kind: it could have been leaked and a life would have been saved.
One man could have made that difference. He didn't - and vengeance has taken forty years to catch up with him.


This thrilling novella is set in the same world as Sunday Times Thriller of the Month, A Treachery of Spies.

What the Critics say about Manda Scott:
