Absolute Friends

£8.99

The friends of the title are Ted Mundy, a British soldier’s son born in 1947 in a newly independent Pakistan, and Sasha, the refugee son of an East German Lutheran pastor and his wife who have sought sanctuary in the West. The two men meet first as students in riot-torn West Berlin of the late Sixties and again in the grimy looking-glass of Cold War espionage. When they meet once more, in today’s unipolar world of terror, counter-terror and the war of lies, they become involved in clandestine activities – with lethal results.

Description

‘One of his most enthralling creations’ Daily Telegraph

Broke and working as a tour guide in Germany, rootless Englishman Ted Mundy catches a glimpse of an old friend hiding in the shadows. A friend he thought was lost to him. A friend who took him from radical 1960s Berlin to life as a double agent. Now, decades later, the Cold War is over and the war on terror has begun. Sasha has another mission for them both, but this time it is impossible to tell the difference between allies – and enemies.

Set in a world of lies and shifting allegiances, Absolute Friends is a savage fable of our times.
