An Agent of Deceit - Chris Morgan Jones

Written by Chris Morgan Jones
Language: English

鈥楾he best debut spy adventure I鈥檝e read in a long time. The two main characters 鈥?a British investigator with a private intelligence agency and the key manipulator of a corrupt Russian oligarch鈥檚 finances 鈥?are vigorously portrayed, with satisfying twists and intrigues鈥?The Times 鈥楥hris Morgan Jones's debut arrives with a weight of expectations on its shoulders. But it's clear right from the chilling, detached opening that these are going to be met . . . Like the icy eastern winter that seeps through the pages of his novel, Morgan Jones's prose is clean and cold, crisp and ominous . . . this is a world Morgan Jones knows, and it shows. In its intelligence, its crispness, its refusal to recognise anything other than shades of grey, there are undoubtedly resonances of Le Carr茅 here. But An Agent of Deceit is too good to need the publishing shorthand for "classy thriller": this is a debut that definitely stands on its own merits鈥?Observer 鈥楢ccomplished and believable鈥?Sunday Times 鈥楽o-called "new Le Carr茅s" are 10 a penny, but Morgan Jones has a better claim to the title than most, having worked for 11 years at the world's largest business intelligence agency. On one level this intelligent, sophisticated spy thriller is about money laundering. But it's also about the willed innocence that makes such activities possible 鈥?the difference between not knowing and choosing not to know . . . dapper prose and stately pacing . . . Genuinely scary鈥?Guardian 'A well-paced, plausible thriller that brings a wealth of experience of corrupt modern business and flits between the City of London, the Cayman Islands, Moscow and Berlin faster than a liquidity crisis' The Times 鈥楳organ Jones weaves an engaging narrative that, through Lock particularly, confronts the dilemma of the west鈥檚 engagement with dubious characters and companies 鈥?and not just those from the former Soviet Union. It is an issue with which many institutions have been grappling lately in places such as Libya . . . An Agent of Deceit is a worthy entry to the long line of spy yarns, and a reminder of how little we still know of wealth and power in Russia, for all the public visibility of the 21st-century oligarchs鈥?Financial Times 鈥楤rimful of insider knowledge, this debut novel heads into the world of corrupt Russian business dealings . . . an elegant, tense thriller鈥?Grazia 鈥楨legant, deep and powerful. An Agent of Deceit is a thinking man鈥檚 thriller that reminded me of John Le Carre鈥檚 classic spy novels 鈥?but set in a chilling contemporary world in which spies have gone private and corporations are more powerful than governments. A remarkably assured debut鈥?Joe Finder, author of Buried Secrets and Paranoia 鈥楩rom Chris Morgan Jones, an absolutely terrific novel. It's about international intrigue--but the real deal. An Agent of Deceit is beautifully written, clean and terse, but you won't notice, because you'll be reading just as fast as you can. Very highly recommended, and you'll want more鈥?Alan Furst
