The Crocus List, Gavin Lyall

The Crocus List

The assassination attempt on the American president in London bore the hallmark of the KGB, but with Britain about to hold unilateral talks with the Russians over Berlin, why should Moscow Centre rock the boat? Major Harry Maxim smelled conspiracy. Trouble was, nobody wanted to believe him.So the Major goes hunting, taking with him his old mentor from Downing Street days, George Harbinger, and another colleague from former times, the not so old and much more attractive Agnes Algar from MI5.It's all highly unofficial, but that doesn't stop Maxim shooting and pistol-whipping his way from London to East Berlin via the Cotswolds, Eastbourne and Illinois, until he finally tracks down the Crocus List – a group of earnest patriots playing God, and soldiers to open the country's eyes to the Russian menace.First published in 1985, The Crocus List is the third novel from Gavin Lyall's Harry Maxim series.
