WASHINGTON SHADOW is the second in the critically acclaimed Peter Cotton series following the fortunes of British spy Peter Cotton. For all fans of John le Carré, Robert Harris, Eric Ambler and Graham Greene.
The war is over. The game has begun. September 1945. Bankrupt and desperate, Britain sends John Maynard Keynes to boom town Washington to beg for a loan. Under cover of the backup team, agent Peter Cotton is sent to investigate the break-up of America's wartime intelligence agency.
Cotton finds himself caught up in a world of shadows involving an extraordinarily attractive girl from the US State Department, a Soviet ex-tank commander claiming to be his opposite number, a contrarian African academic, an ambitious, quick-tempered boss from the world of misinformation . . . and an Anglo-American conspiracy that will change the world of post-war intelligence for ever.
