WATCHMAN


WATCHMAN

IAN RANKIN    Book Number: 83523    Product format: Paperback

Bestselling crime writer Ian Rankin dominates the world of police procedurals with his cop Rebus, but not many people know that in earlier years he tried his hand at the spy genre. Now reissued, Watchman will make his many fans regret that he decided not to follow in the footsteps of Le Carré. The setting is 80s London and Miles Flint is keeping a discreet eye on an Arab visitor, codenamed "Latchkey", in an hotel lobby. Momentarily distracted by a well-timed approach from the resident hooker, Miles loses sight of his quarry with fatal consequences for an obscure Israeli diplomat. Narrowly escaping an Oxford Street bomb, though his IT wizard colleague Pete Saville is not so lucky, Miles is sure he is being set up and sets about uncovering the mole within the service. Team members Sinclair and Phillips are sidelined following operation Latchkey so could it be someone higher up? Or the maverick Billy Monmouth, whom Miles suspects of having an affair with his wife? Brilliantly plotted and well characterised, this is a first-rate read. 269pp, paperback.
