This is an espionage thriller that grips right from the start. Charles Cumming, author of five previous novels, has a keen sense of character and pacing, and he always brings something interesting and new to the genre. His 2011 novel, The Trinity Six, was an absorbing look at the Cambridge spy ring, and in this new novel the first female head of MI6 has disappeared six weeks before she is to take on the job, and a disgraced MI6 officer is given the chance to redeem himself by finding her. In the meantime, it is imperative that her disappearance remains a secret. Thrilling stuff.

In park kick-abouts my friends all wanted to be George Best or Jimmy Greaves or Charlie Cooke. I always wanted to be Hugh McIlvanney. Reading him 40 years ago made me want to become a sports writer in the first place. This book – a masterpiece collection of his newspaper work from the 1960s onwards – will show you why. On every page you’ll find a sentence worthy of a gilt-frame. On most you’ll find as many as half a dozen. McIlvanney dazzles. He is a genius, and football ought to be eternally grateful that he chose to write about it.
