London 1989: Michel is an undercover PLO operative hooked on painkillers and posing as a student. He is tasked by mentor Abu Leila to find a venue for secret Palestinian-Israeli talks. But fellow student Helen, forbidden fruit in this clandestine world, is proving to be a distraction. Michel is forced to go on the run when he takes possession of a package smuggled out of the Occupied Territories and linked to an assassination in Berlin — a package that both the Israelis and the Palestinians are desperate to get hold of. From the streets of London, Cambridge and Berlin, to the remotest areas of Scotland, Michel must use his KGB training and Helen's help to shake off his pursuers and stay one step ahead.'A shrewd espionage thriller. Poignant. Powerful.' The Economist
'Packs a suspense-filled punch.' Guardian
'Hiller recalls the cool detachment and compelling eye for the ordinary detail that characterised the early thrillers of Graham Greene.' Independent on Sunday 'Melancholy and dreamlike, Hiller's neat upending of conventions movingly captures the realpolitik of a conflict perpetuated by the shared interests of enemies.' Telegraph 'In the best le Carre tradition… Hiller brings to his works not only a craftsman's skill but also a compassion for his characters that proves infectious.' Haaretz
