Tossed out of the Service only months before, Kell is given one final chance to redeem himself--all he has to do is find Amelia Levene: quickly, quietly, and at any cost. Indeed, the novel does double duty as a survival manual, packed full of good advice—for instance, try not to get wounded, for “injury turns you from a giver to a taker.

This is another first-rate intelligent thriller which will cement Cumming's reputation as one of the most engaging British novelists writing today.

Al principio parecía más bien un drama familiar, pero poco a poco se va hilvanando una historia de viejos rencores, de suplantación de personalidades, de luchas para conseguir el puesto de honor en un despacho de la inteligencia inglesa. Julian Fellowes’s Belgravia is a story in 11 episodes published week by week in the tradition of Charles Dickens. How about when your country asks you to do something, things go sideways, and then they hang you out to dry? Until 2013, when the law changed, India was the surrogacy capital of the world, as it was so much cheaper there. Soon after, a young man is abducted from a dark Paris street in a 20-second maneuver “as easy as lighting a cigarette.Maybe, but the sasquatches whom the volcano displaced contributed to the statistics, too, if only out of self-defense. Incapaz de adaptarse a la vida civil y en medio de una tormentosa ruptura matrimonial, Kell está a punto de tocar fondo, pero a sus cuarenta y dos años no puede rechazar esta oportunidad, tal vez la última de su vida, para redimirse ante sus colegas y volver a ejercer el único trabajo que sabe hacer.

Considering the body counts, I thought it rather droll that Kell is supposedly in a quiver over waterboarding! Another sweltering month in Charlotte, another boatload of mysteries past and present for overworked, overstressed forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan.A mass of memories and records, of relics and replicas, of monuments and memorabilia, sustains our being. Isolated pieces—the dissolution, in Tunisia a generation ago, of the marriage of Jean-Marc Daumal and wife Celine over his affair with nanny Amelia Weldon; the present-day murder of elderly Parisians Philippe and Jeannine Malot on a Cairo street; the kidnapping of a target nicknamed HOLST by one Akim Errachidi and his team—precede the introduction of dissolute Thomas Kell, waking up in a hotel room with another hangover eight months after his surgical dismissal, after two decades of service, from Britain's MI6. Cuando Kell descubre que ella ha desaparecido del hotel en el que supuestamente estaba alojada, trata de encontrarla, lo cual le llevará a viajar hasta Túnez, donde la trama empieza a complicarse bastante. The premise of the blurb drew me in - the first female head of MI6 disappearing - but it in no way lived up to the hype.

Los personajes son sencillos y tampoco nos da tiempo de conocerlos demasiado, a excepción de Thomas Kell (persona compleja y con muchos problemas personales y contradicciones morales, que imagino siga creciendo en su complejidad a través de los siguientes libros) y de Amelia Levene, próxima directora del MI6 con un pasado y un presente lleno de sed¡creemos pero que pelea continuamente por ascender en su carrera dentro de la inteligencia británica. The details (which Cumming is very good at painting) become less relevant and can be lost in the desire to reach the end.

I usually think of spies as so bland looking that they disappear into the woodwork or stonework of wherever they are.
