A linguistic prodigy, Douglas Boyd spent his early years in the exciting world of East European espionage. Douglas Boyd certainy knows how to write a good story. Traded back to the West, through the Red Cross, Boyd avoided court martial and imprisonment, and entered the film industry. He worked for the BBC and is now a full time writer. Changing from a sympathetic study of his main characters and creating doubt about the ancillary characters to episodes of high drama and excitement I was kept totally absorbed. Fortunately, I was on holiday and could read it with only minor pauses. I look forward to reading more of Douglas's books.

Ukraine! The name of the country means on the edge! Living there has always been hard. Now it's highly dangerous too.
When ex-university lecturer Tom Fielding goes on the run with Clive Ponsonby of MI6 - the man who put him in Longfield Open Prison for eight years - he has only hours in which to save several lives.
Ponsonby's former agent, Nosarenko, is now President of the the Ukraine. He is determined to silence Tom. Why? Because he was the sole witness of a gruesome murder in the 1980s which could destroy his political career.
Clive Ponsonby wants the half-million dollars that went missing during Tom's mission in Russia.
And Tom wants to stay alive long enough to protect the three women in his life - his Russian ex-wife, their daughter Svetlana, and Karen McKenzie, the one person to stand by him when he went to jail.
There is only one thing that will stop the killing. It's a film Tom shot of the murder, hidden somewhere in the centre of Asia with the Virgin of Kazan, the most valuable icon in the world.
If he can get the both the icon and the film safely back to the west in time, Tom will be rich and safe.
If not, he'll be dead...
