From the internationally acclaimed, New York Times bestselling author of The Trinity Six, Charles Cumming, comes A Foreign Country, a compelling tale of deceit and betrayal, conspiracy and redemption
 
On the vacation of a lifetime in Egypt, an elderly French couple are brutally murdered. Days later, a meticulously-planned kidnapping takes place on the streets of Paris. Amelia Levene, the first female Chief of MI6, has disappeared without a trace, six weeks before she is due to take over as the most influential spy in Europe. It is the gravest crisis MI6 has faced in more than a decade. Desperate not only to find her, but to keep her disappearance a secret, Britain’s top intelligence agents turn to one of their own: disgraced MI6 officer Thomas Kell. Tossed out of the Service only months before, Kell is given one final chance to redeem himself - find Amelia Levene at any cost. The trail leads Kell to France and Tunisia, where he uncovers a shocking secret and a conspiracy that could have unimaginable repercussions for Britain and its allies. Only Kell stands in the way of personal and political catastrophe.
 
A Foreign Country is one The Washington Post's Best Audiobooks of 2012.

Praise for A Foreign Country

“Jot Davies’s narration ushers you in; his voice is a steady presence through the disparate events from the beginning to the satisfying conclusion…Davies’s pacing fits the narrative, quickening as tension increases, mechanical as an extraction team pursues its deadly work, wistful or angry as the protagonist’s situation demands. You’ll find yourself wishing this story would continue just a while longer.” – AudioFile Magazine

“Faultlessly performed by Jot Davies.” – BookPage

“Narrator Jot Davies’s crisp, stiff-upper-lift performance perfectly captures Thomas Kell, a former British agent who was unceremoniously dismissed from MI6…Davis’s characterizations are subtle but effective: a slightly softer delivery for females, and understated accent for French characters. His rendition of Amanda captures the character’s sophisticated haughtiness, as well as her self-doubt, while his Kell remains unflappably British in his quest for answers and redemption.” – Publishers Weekly

“[Jot Davies’s] versatility provides outstanding tone and nuance to the story’s varied cast of characters.” – The Star-Ledger
