The Madness of July – James Naughtie
Drawing on James Naughtie’s years of experience as a political insider, this is a sophisticated thriller about loyalty, survival and family rivalry at the height of the Cold War.
It is a sweltering July in the mid-1970s, and for Will Flemyng, foreign office minister, the temperature is rising with each passing hour. A mysterious death has exposed secret passions in government, bringing on a political crisis that will draw him back into a familiar world of danger and deceit.
For Flemyng has a past. He was trained as a spy for a life behind enemy lines and now he’s compelled to go back. In the course of one long weekend he must question all his loyalties: to his friends, his enemies, and to his own two brothers.
Only then can he expose the truth in London and Washington.
