A Divided Spy (Thomas Kell 3) - Reviews

The Sunday Times

"The spies’ shifting psychological duel is riveting … deftly coupled with a topical subplot"

The Daily Mail

"Thomas Kell has become one of the most interesting and well-drawn spies in contemporary literature a man who now deserves to be spoken of in the same breath as George Smiley, and who is every bit as discreet. . . Delicately written, with Cumming's customary subtle humor, A Divided Spy confirms him as le Carre's heir."

The Times

"A gripping psychological clash of wills, tactics and morals … Kell’s third appearance confirms him as one of the most interesting and sympathetic characters in the spy thriller field"

CIA officer Valerie Plane

"Charles Cumming is astonishingly masterful at capturing the grey and sometimes amoral world of espionage. A Divided Spy feels authentic and is a riveting read that should be devoured in one sitting."

The Washington Post

"Compelling. . . complex. . . dangerous. . . Hard to put down."

Jason Matthews, author of 'Red Sparrow'

"A magnetic tale of the New Cold War: not since George Smiley trapped Karla have we seen such a delicious recruitment between East and West."
