John Altman's first novel was widely praised: "Deliciously atmospheric," said Publishers Weekly. "An irresistible page-turner from a welcome new voice." His second novel, however, is even better.It is February 1940, and England is desperate to find out when and how Hitler will make his move west toward France. A youngsleeper agent named Eva Bernhardt, seduced into spydom by a roguish MI6 agent named Hobbs, comes into possession of a vital piece ofinformation and makes a run for it. But the Germans are on to her quickly - too quickly. Was her source compromised? Was that Hobbs she just saw in the street? Who are those other men shadowing her -or are they? In a lethal game of ruse and counter-ruse, the British and Germans engage in a war of intelligence, each side testing the other, searching for advantage, but there are some things even spymasters cannot control. Uncertain whom to trust, whether she is racing toher safety or her death, Eva Bernhardt is about to take her future into her own hands -and with it, perhaps the future of the entire war.Filled with dazzling setpieces, unpredictable twists, and a memorable gallery of characters, this is suspense writing at its best.

A deadly web of deceit ensnares two spies with a complicated personal history in this electrifying tale of World War II
Eva Bernhardt was a naive twenty-year-old when the rakish spymaster William Hobbs seduced her into working for the British secret service. Now, a year later, she is a tough and cynical operative stationed in Berlin, her hatred of the Nazis matched only by her distrust of the man who abandoned her to the whims of MI6.
Tasked with discovering Hitler's plans for invading France, Eva unearths what appears to be a vital piece of information. What she doesn't realize is that the Germans know she is a spy and are using her to mislead the Allies. It is up to Hobbs to rescue Eva and prevent a military disaster. Standing in his way are her seething resentment and two of the Gestapo's most sinister agents.
From one astonishing plot twist to the next, A Game of Spies is a riveting story of cloak-and-dagger intrigue in the tradition of Eric Ambler and John le Carré.
