"Six years ago, after working for the British Secret Intelligence Service, Alec Milius got out of the spy game after being drummed out by M15. His retirement came after unbearably great personal cost, but just because he's walked away from the life doesn't mean that life has walked away from him." "Now living in exile in Madrid, quietly and as far under the radar as possible, Milius keeps a constant eye out for the enemies he made, hoping to avoid any future involvement. Yet when a prominent Basque politician goes missing under suspicious circumstances, Milius soon finds himself embroiled in another international conspiracy"--Book jacket.

It's a good read, maddeningly, but good. It is not as good as Typhoon, another of his books.

If you enjoy the novels of John Le Carre or Graham Greene, you'll like Cumming's. It's not necessary to love or even like a protagonist in order to find him/her interesting. That's the case here. Alec Milius is a piece of work -- truly "A Spy by Nature" as the novel that precedes this one makes clear -- and as such not so much amiable/admirable as fascinating. A good read, in my judgment.
