One of 'the heirs to John le Carre' The Times 'A tremendous achievement' WILLIAM BOYD 'Behold the new Golden Age of Spy Kings' Sunday Times
March, 2022
One of 'the heirs to John le Carre' The Times 'A tremendous achievement' WILLIAM BOYD 'Behold the new Golden Age of Spy Kings' Sunday Times To betray, you must first belong... In June 1934, Kim Philby met his Soviet handler, the spy Arnold Deutsch. The woman who introduced them was called Edith Tudor-Hart. She changed the course of 20th century history. Then she was written out of it. Drawing on the Secret Intelligence Files on Edith Tudor-Hart, along with the private archive letters of Kim Philby, this finely worked, evocative and beautifully tense novel - by the granddaughter of Kim Philby - tells the story of the woman behind the Third Man. A future classic: 'A fine achievement' THE TIMES 'Completely fascinating. A sophisticated and brilliantly constructed fictional retelling of a crucial relationship in 20th century espionage history. A tremendous achievement' WILLIAM BOYD 'Persuasive... involving... impressive' LITERARY REVIEW 'A fascinating contribution to the literature of the Cambridge spies by a clever, nimble writer with some genuine skin in the game' CHARLES CUMMING 'I was most impressed... completely absorbing' MICK HERRON 'A tense and brilliantly structured story of power and intrigue... I couldn't put it down' JANE SHEMILT 'A dangerous game of shadows that kept me reading late into the night. A dark, atmospheric and addictive novel' CHRIS POWER, AUTHOR OF A LONELY MAN 'Mother, lover, revolutionary, spy - Edith Tudor-Hart will have you in her thrall from the first page. Philby's stunning fourth novel thrusts this former bit-player in the Cambridge Spy scandal to the centre stage where she belongs... Her best book yet' ERIN KELLY 'Blending SIS files and imagined letters from her grandfather, Philby shines a spotlight on Edith Tudor-Hart as activist, spy and often desperate single, working mother' SARAH VAUGHAN 'Edith and Kim is unforgettable. It is both a fascinating exploration of a key moment in history and a stunning piece of fiction' HOLLY WATT
