‘A thrilling read, brilliantly evocative of the insidiousness, paranoia and mistrust of the Soviet period. [...] a page-turner packed with excellently drawn characters and backdrops that leap off the page’ Charlotte Philby

'A beautifully detailed corrective to the kiss-kiss bang-bang of far too many spy novels' The Irish Times

Ted wants to be a proper journalist rather than a film critic, but at least the travel is good. He arrives in Bucharest to interview a renowned film director, but suspects the man he sees is an imposter. His guide, Vasile, has involved him in a more interesting story about a missing girl, a puzzle Ted aims to solve while he’s in Moscow at the 1975 International Film Festival. In Moscow, though, the mystery deepens, and Ted finds himself asked to do more than a few dubious favours.
