The Unlikely Spy

Postby 8 boston square » 01 Dec 2018, 03:51

I have just finished reading a book by Daniel Silva called "The unlikely Spy its set in the lead up to and then the 2nd World War and the D Day Landings. Full of deception its al excellent spy yarn well worth looking out in the Charity shops as its 1996 release.
A fair amount is set in the coast from Hunstanton along through Brancaster to a place Hampton Sands ( sounds like Holkham to me) where a German Spy is inserted. There is much talk of taking the train from Hunstanton to Liverpool Street especially the 0712 where he meets up with another agent trying to get details of the Allied landings.
Well worth looking out for as are his other books featuring Israeli secret service agent Gabriel Allon, really excellent stories with a good amount of English places and backgrounds, he does his research well, I recognize the Cornish places and the London ones.
