Thanks to Sapere Books for my review copy of Geoffrey Davison’s, The Spy Who Swapped Shoes, the first of his Espionage thrillers starring the infallible Stephen Fletcher.
Starting out in Eastern Europe at the time of the Cold War, Stephen Fletcher is a British spy who is tasked with becoming Comrade Nikovitch, with the intention of infiltrating a Russian camp designed to train Russian agents to live in England and befriend important people and politicians.
This is a very strongly plotted espionage thriller, full of spy’s and double agents, it’s an intriguing tale, that doesn’t let up and it has a real old school feel, reminiscent of John Le Carré.
A fast paced, sharply plotted complex espionage thriller, it's a quick, enjoyable and exciting read
If you enjoy your war-time spy thrillers, this really is a cracking little read.
I’ll definitely be reading the rest of the series.
