Disobedient Servant Thistle Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Guy Colchester is an obedient servant in a very British civil service. His world is turned upside down when he is asked to undertake secret work involving weapons of mass destruction in the Middle East. The difficulty is knowing who in this upside down secret world he is really working for, what the weapons are and which part of the Middle East is in question. The Disobedient Servant is a political thriller in the tradition of Graham Greene, with a touch of Eric Ambler. Set in the dying days of the Cold War, it tells the story of a cog that gradually works loose in the whirring machinery of government, with destabilising effects for all concerned. 'Like Graham Greene and Eric Ambler, British former civil servant and speech-writer Ackland understands that contemporary espionage involves more bureaucrats than spies. In this intelligently constructed debut thriller, the unlikely protagonist is one Guy Colchester, a lowly official in the Ministry of Exports, a Walter Mitty without the daydreams.' Publishers Weekly 'Beguiling first fiction - part thriller and part rite of passage... Ackland, a former civil servant, effectively mines his own past to give this tale a nice gloss of authenticity. A literate romp through the bureaucracy with plenty of danger and riveting excitement.' Kirkus Reviews

"The Family Arsenal" is a darkly comic novel of warped morals and disillusionment in South London by the award-winning writer Paul Theroux. In South London terrorists plot...Hood, a renegade American diplomat, envisions a new urban order in the opium for of his room. He flirts with terrorists, hoping to win their trust and respect. Mayo, his sometime bedmate, has just made a political statement - stealing a "Flemish" painting and negotiating publicity over this act with "The Times". Murf the bomb-maker leaves his mark in red, scrawling 'Arsenal Rule' across half the city's walls, whilst his sixteen-year-old girlfriend, Brodie, bombs Euston and afterwards worries about her complexion. A novel of London lowlife and the dispossessed, and a powerful and violent thriller of disenchanted people. "A pleasure ...with Theroux the thrills are never cheap and obvious". ("Guardian"). "One of the most evocative, intelligently crafted suspense novels in years - like the early fiction of Graham Greene...London has rarely looked dingier or more sinister assured success". ("The New York Times"). "Brilliant and haunting ...the ingenious of the plot, the London setting ...the trapped and interwoven people, and the balefully witty observation, have an undistracted force". ("Observer").
