In this gripping, tightly plotted tale of espionage, Malko Linge investigates the suspicious death of a Russian oligarch in London.


Boris Berezovsky is living in exile in London to avoid the wrath of Vladimir Putin. One morning, the unlucky oligarch is found dead in his bathroom, an apparent suicide.


Their suspicions aroused, MI5 opens an investigation—but Prime Minister David Cameron orders the case closed. Alarmed at the renewal of Russian Cold War tricks and Moscow’s increasingly close ties to London, the CIA dispatches Malko Linge to investigate Berezovsky’s death and the British cover-up. With help from an alluring former CIA handler, Malko dives into the search for hard evidence of the Kremlin’s involvement in the affair—putting himself directly in the crosshairs of the world’s most efficient assassins.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Ripped from the headlines..His books tell unvarnished truths that many prefer to ignore.”

    Wall Street Journal, praise for the author

  • Ripped from the headlines. . . . His books tell unvarnished truths that many prefer to ignore. The Wall Street Journal
  • De Villiers’ books are ahead of the news and sometimes even ahead of events themselves. The New York Times Magazine
  • “The crafty agent, assisted by his usual assortment of secret sources, trade-craft tricks, and sex-hungry female informants, tracks the killing back to the Kremlin and Vladimir Putin’s desire to eliminate potential rivals…Be prepared for the author’s distinct signature: raunchy, detailed sex.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Is the British government helping Moscow in a cover-up? Malko Linge, an Austrian version of James Bond, is assigned by the CIA to find out why British MI5 won’t investigate the supposed suicide of Boris Berezovsky. Narrator Nicholas Guy Smith moves through the curt dialogue and lengthy descriptions in clipped tones that set the tone for a story of international espionage. Smith is consistent in his delivery, maintaining a steady pace and pitch throughout the complicated action sequences. There are many characters, settings, and motives for the listener to keep track of. Smith’s Russian-accented English rings true and helps differentiate speakers in the large cast.”

About the Author

Gérard de Villiers (1929–2013) was a French writer, journalist, and publisher. He remains the most popular writer of spy thrillers in French history. His two-hundred-odd books about the adventures of Austrian nobleman and freelance CIA operative Malko Linge have sold millions of copies. Malko Linge, who first appeared in 1965, has often been compared to Ian Fleming’s hero James Bond. The two secret agents share a taste for gunplay and sex, but de Villiers was a journalist at heart, and his books are based on constant travel and reporting in dozens of countries.
