An Honorable Man by Paul Vidich

An Honorable Man

Paul Vidich

John Le Carre meets Grahame Greene, but with a genuinely US feel: not least because the book is set in 1952 at the height of McCarthyism, when the FBI may prove more dangerous to the CIA than any Soviet Agency.

Extract

Where once there was a struggle between good and evil, the clarity was gone, and he was in a new gray-toned world where right and wrong blurred. The many innocent people who were collateral damage haunted him. He knew himself well enough to recognize the signs that he was becoming a burnt-out case.
