“A convincing and gripping spy thriller with a clever, twisty plot, believable characters and an abundance of credible spy lore. Highly recommended.” —The Age

"Astonishingly masterful . . . riveting." —Valerie Plame, New York Times bestselling author of Fair Game

Thomas Kell thought he was done with spying. A former MI6 officer, he devoted his life to the Service, but it has left him with nothing but grief and a simmering anger against the Kremlin.

Then Kell is offered an unexpected chance at revenge. Taking the law into his own hands, he embarks on a mission to recruit a top Russian spy who is in possession of a terrifying secret. As Kell tracks his man from Moscow to London, he finds himself in a high stakes game of cat and mouse in which it becomes increasingly difficult to know who is playing whom.

As the mission reaches boiling point, the threat of a catastrophic terrorist attack looms over Britain. In Charles Cummings' A Divided Spy, Kell is faced with an impossible choice. Loyalty to MI6—or to his own conscience?




Put it all on red. Put it all on black.

Praise for A Divided Spy

"As usual Cumming’s gift for writing complex, wheels-within-wheels spy stories is on display and Jot Davies, a television and voice actor who has recorded dozens of audiobooks, does a good job of conveying the tension and excitement in the writing and creating great accented voices. Davies can be threatening, dramatic, and emotional when called for. Fans will be delighted and new readers/listeners will have no problem following the action and will doubtless want to read the first two titles in the series."

"In this final entry in Cumming’s espionage trilogy, series narrator Davies reads the twisty tale of trust and
deceit to perfection...From Kell’s blazing anger at an employee who jeopardizes a setup to ensnare Minasian’s lover, to the stress of a breathless runner, to the pleading of a young woman with her lover, Davies brings each of the characters to life. Whether he’s giving voice to world-weary Kell, an elderly landlady, a German architect, a Russian spy, or even describing a fertility website, Davies is in control, and the listener never questions who is speaking. His timing and pacing are impeccable, and he is equally adept at voicing males and females." -Booklist, Starred Review

"...Jot Davies...gets all the accents just right...As the intricate plot unfolds, with backstories galore and a searing subplot taken from the headlines, you can't help but be caught up in the story, rooting for Kell, but not really wanting to lose Minasian. I hope they'll turn up again." -BookPage
