Edward Wilson – The Whitehall Mandarin
Edward Wilson – The Master of Espionage is back with the latest in the bestselling Catesby spy series, The Whitehall Mandarin – Midas PR spread the word.
Lady Somers is rich, beautiful and powerful – and the first woman to head up the Ministry of Defence. She also has something to hide. Catesby’s job is to uncover her story and bury it forever. His quest leads him through the sex scandals of London in the Swinging Sixties – and then on to Moscow where a shocking message changes everything. His next mission is a desperate hunt through the war-torn jungles of Southeast Asia, where he finally makes a heart-breaking discovery that is as personal as it is political.
It is a secret that Catesby may not live to share. This captivating novel is set in a world of distorted reflections where nothing or no one is what they seem to be. Thrilling and deeply intelligent, The Whitehall Mandarin reveals the most guarded intelligence secret of modern times. Edward Wilson’s page-turning thriller is not just a chilling story of multi-national espionage, terror, greed and duplicity, but a frightening and eye-opening exposé of secrets, lies and false promises that may not, in fact, be fiction.
Praise for Edward Wilson
‘The thinking person’s John le Carré’ Tribune
‘does well those things that thrillers are supposed to do, but adds a mordant wit and a poignant sense of the human cost of every move in the game of nations’ Independent
‘a glorious seething broth of historical fact and old-fashioned spy story’ The Times
‘belongs on the bookshelf alongside similarly unsettling works by le Carré, Alan Furst and Eric Ambler’
