Triple Cross by Tom Bradby is the final instalment of his Kate Henderson spy trilogy.
Kicking off with a potentially compromised prime minister in the first instalment, Triple Cross brings a complex web of masterful spy-craft and treachery to a conclusion.
It’s a superb read.
Attempting to rebuild her shattered life in the South of France, former MI6 operative Kate Henderson receives an unexpected and most unwelcome visit from an old adversary – the UK Prime Minister.
He has an extraordinary story to tell – and he needs her help.
A Russian agent has come forward with news that the PM has been the victim of the greatest misinformation play in the history of MI6.
It’s run out of a special KGB unit that exists for one purpose alone: to process the intelligence from ‘Agent Dante’, a mole right at the heart of MI6 in London.
Against her better judgement, Kate is forced back into the fray in a top-secret, deeply flawed and dangerous investigation.
But now she’s damaged goods.
Her one-time allies no longer trust her.
And neither do her enemies.
With the stakes this high, can the truth ever come out? Or is the cost of uncovering it a price that no one, least of all Kate, can afford to pay?
