A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Henry Jaggard of British intelligence creates a plan to discipline a subordinate while intervening in the secret meeting of two feuding KGB agents

From Library Journal:

In this spy thriller enriched with scholarly and literary trivia, the plot hinges on interdepartmental rivalry in the British intelligence establishment. The rivalry is played out against a backdrop of Polish dissident groups and aging Soviet spies, and Price captures the essential isolation of spies from the real world and from any clear foreign policy goals. However, there's a lot of romantic nonsense about the Polish national character; one of the half-Polish British spooks, Sir Thomas Arkenshaw, is embroiled in a struggle between his stolid British and hot-blooded Polish genes. Nevertheless, the book is well written and has some good dialogue. Best of all, the bureaucrat who concocted that plot against his rivals finds it exploding in his face. Even in the spy world there's still some justice. Louise A. Merriam, L.E. Phillips Memorial P.L., Eau Claire, Wis.

The Archives Book Shop is an oasis in time, with material from the 18th Century to the 21st Century, located a few blocks from picturesque Michigan State University with a coffee shop (and waterfall) connecting. We specialize in both modern and old-and-rare items for the collector and pleasure reader, as well as the scholar, with over 25,000 volumes and 40,000 vintage postcards: leather bindings, hardcovers and paperbacks, books that have been read, loved and make the heart sing; wonderful-to-hold-in-your-hand volumes. On any day, you may find signed documents, a letter from W. H. Auden, a leatherbound first edition of Johnson's Tour, a Faulkner paperback, vintage catalogs and automotive ephemera, etchings, atlases, bookends, original bookcover paintings, or real-photo postcards and photographs. We will send email JPG file color images of any item upon request. _________________________________________________________________________ Our store is quiet and unique, and an easy walk to downtown East Lansing, hotels, and Michigan State University.
