The Cambridge Theorem, by Tony Cape

The Cambridge Theorem, by Tony Cape

This “combination of P.D. James and John le Carré” (Austin American-Statesman) is one of the best-loved books on our entire list, about a graduate student who stumbles across – no, that’s not right; he has done meticulous research – a solution to one of history’s most fascinating and dangerous questions: Was there a fifth member of the notorious Cambridge Spy Ring of the 1930s? (Also available as an ebook.)

Paper Chase, by Bob Cook

Paper Chase, by Bob Cook

Getting together mostly at other people’s funerals, there to squabble over long-dead points of protocol, the retired spies have little in common until a new Director – a management-boy, with cheap shoes and no feeling for cricket – sends round a crassly worded warning that they are under no circumstances to consider writing their memoirs. Guess what happens. (Also available as an ebook.)

The Romeo Flag, by Carolyn Hougan

The Romeo Flag, by Carolyn Hougan

This book is arguably the entire reason I launched Felony & Mayhem; I couldn’t stand that something so good would be out of print. I particularly love the fact that even walk-on characters have specific personalities, and the fact that there’s something for everyone here: History, chase-scenes, Cold War conniving, a setting that ranges from Revolution-era Russia to a cabin in Maine, a smattering of wet-work and a little hot sex.

The Spy's Wife, by Reginald Hill

The Spy’s Wife, by Reginald Hill

One of several brilliant espionage novels that Hill – best known, of course, for his staggeringly good and staggeringly popular “Dalziel and Pascoe series” – wrote.  Here, Molly Keatley’s pleasant suburban life is abruptly changed – there’s an understatement – by the news that her husband of ten years is in fact a Soviet spy.

Soviet Sources, by Robert Cullen

Soviet Sources, by Robert Cullen

My father is rather notoriously difficult to please. He loves espionage, but – like a (bald) literary Goldilocks – finds le Carré too slow, Nelson DeMille too focused on plot with little nuance. But when I gave him Soviet Sources, about a journalist in the waning days of the Evil Empire, he said, “Hunh. This guy really knows his stuff.” Well, yes: Cullen was chief of Newsweek’s Moscow bureau for 15 years. Extra credit: He writes like a dream.
