Free Agent - Jeremy Duns, 2009

The Cold War is the perfect setting for spy stories and Jeremy Duns knows exactly how to take advantage of this. Paul Dark, a British agent, is caught up in a conspiracy trap in Nigeria during his personal pursuit of a soviet double agent on the run. The situation becomes more complicated when some hidden feelings arise.
Fully detailled and well documented with historic facts and technical issues, Duns masters the time lines, psychological reactions and movements of each character, and allow us to enjoy a brilliantly coherent first person narrative. From the very begining of his writing career, Jeremy Duns shows highly mature management of narrative structures.

Keep an eye on: descriptions of places, every single detail mentioned is there for a reason.

“Free Agent” is the kind of book that didn’t allow me to sleep at night until I finished it.

The first novel of this British author shows his talent and we can definitely expect much more in “Free World” which will also be released this year.

Highly recommended.
