Description
Safe houses and secret message drops, double crosses and defections -- it sounds like the stuff of sophisticated espionage, but the agents are only schoolboys engaged in harmless play. But John Creevey doesn't know this. To him, the messages he decodes with painstaking care are the communications of dangerous and evil men, and as he comes face to face with the fact of his beloved wife Jennifer's defection, he begins to see a way to get back at the man she left him for. And soon the schoolboys are playing more than just a game . . .

display_descriptionA man yearns to win back his wife's love and wreak vengeance on her lover with the help of a secret ring of spies. Dead drops, coded messages, and a safe house - it's all make-believe for a teenage spy ring. But when John Creevey intercepts the messages and believes them to be the work of a real crime syndicate, the spy games turn deadly serious in a fiery cocktail of obsession and revenge. Ruth Rendell expertly layers her narrative to reveal the grotesque truths behind her characters' ordinary lives.
