“A smashing Cold War thriller for the twenty-first century.” —People magazine

 

Recruited in the 1930s, the members of the Cambridge spy ring were the most notorious Soviet spies in history. But what if there were a sixth member of the ring whose identity was never revealed?

 

“A lively thriller…astute…inventive…a notable addition to the accounts of the Cambridge spies.” —The New York Times Book Review

Sam Gaddis is a divorced academic in need of money. A journalist friend tells him that she’s uncovered the century’s most extraordinary spy scandal. Within hours, she’s dead. Soon Gaddis is in the crosshairs of a very real, very dangerous plot. Risking everything he has and everyone he loves, Gaddis follows leads that take him all over Europe and beyond, unraveling the layers of Cold War secrets surrounding the notorious sixth man. And, with MI6 trying to throw him off the trail, Gaddis approaches a shocking revelation that threatens the peace and security of modern Europe.

“Cumming is a wonderful storyteller who…makes it all feel fresh. The Cold War is over but in The Trinity Six, it’s hotter than ever!” —USA Today

Praise for The Trinity Six

Praise for Charles Cumming and

 

the trinity six

 

“Brilliant…scene after scene crackles with excitement, tension, and suspense. The novel’s ingenious plot is almost as complicated as real life…the book is all but impossible to put aside. Cumming joins Alan Furst, David Ignatius, and Olen Steinhauer among the most skillful current spy novelists, and he bears comparison with masters such as John le Carré and Graham Greene.”—The Washington Post

“Intelligent and briskly paced…comparisons to John le Carré and Len Deighton continue to gild [Cumming’s] reputation as a premier writer of espionage thrillers.” —USA Today

“With its mix of old-school espionage and present-day duplicities, The Trinity Six is a smashing Cold War thriller for the twenty-first century.” —People

 “A lively thriller…astute…inventive.” —The New York Times Book Review 

“Cumming’s novel is characterized by a gripping sense of realism. He displays a vast knowledge of spycraft and Cold War history, and the dense, three-dimensional world he crafts comes complete with seedy hotels and smoky nightclubs. The result is absolutely gripping.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Cumming's knowledge of the spy business, his well-crafted prose, and his intensely engaging plot make this a breakthrough novel.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

 

A Foreign Country

 

“A fast-paced and absorbing spy thriller.”—Wall Street Journal

 

“Charles Cumming makes his espionage novel feel fresh.” —The New York Times

 

“Simmers and crackles until the explosive finale.”—Library Journal

 

“Eat your heart out, Daniel Craig...Cumming vividly showcases meticulous research and insight into the undercover life of spies.”—GQ

 

“Superb.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

 

“A tale of European intrigue and conspiracy from a novelist who knows how the espionage game is played.”—Shelf Awareness

 

“Smart and intricate, with a large cast of cool characters and an authentic feel.”—Kirkus Reviews

 

“One of those very rare books that from its first page demonstrates that it’s something out of the ordinary, one of those tales that the reader hopes will never end...”—Bookreporter
