Agent 6 by Tom Rob Smith

Leo Demidov returns for Smith’s third installment about the ex-KGB officer.  This book picks up later in Demidov’s life, after he has left the service and is fighting the ghosts of his past.  Demidov’s wife and adoptive daughters have gone to New York as part of a Cold War good faith mission.  What happens in New York changes his life and those of his entire family.  Smith has created a great character in Demidov and I hope this isn’t his last mission.

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy by John LeCarre

This first novel in LeCarre’s Karla Trilogy is definitely worth a read, especially as it is being remade into a movie later this year.  Set at the height of the Cold War, LeCarre’s hero, the British Secret Service Agent George Smiley, is forced out of retirement and placed in charge of finding the Soviet mole within the British ranks.  The excellent pacing and intrigue will keep you turning the pages until the mole is uncovered. 

The Trinity Six by Charles Cumming

A great spy thriller, reminiscent of LeCarre.  Cumming's book explores the possibility of their being a sixth man in the infamous 'Cambridge Five' spy ring.  Sam Gaddis, who thinks he is on to a great story, finds himself in the middle of a standoff between British and Russian operatives.  Check Our Catalog.
