A unique collection of brand-new spy stories from world-class writers. An instant classic for thrill addicts everywhere.

Features a brand new short story from Lee Child

From a secretive soldier on the eve of the Normandy landings to a golf-playing gun fanatic in a suburb of modern Britain, everybody has something to hide in this brilliant collection of original spy fiction that brings together the distinctive voices of the genre for the very first time.

In Lee Child’s ‘Section 7’, a Top Secret operational meeting is given a sly twist, while David Morrell’s tale of an interrogator’s techniques in a world where the tables might turn at any moment is dark, sinister and frighteningly real. In a business where one country’s traitor is another country’s hero, how far would you go to get to the truth?

With an introduction from Otto Penzler, these thrilling tales of intrigue and deception, heroism and betrayal, courage and cowardice will push your adrenaline to dangerous new levels.

With contributions from:
Charles McCarry, Lee Child, James Grady, Joseph Finder, John Lawton, John Weisman, Stephen Hunter, Gayle Lynds, David Morrell, Andrew Klavan, Robert Wilson, Dan Fesperman, Stella Rimington, Olen Steinhauer.
