Watchman

A Novel
By Ian Rankin (Hardcover Book, 2007)
From #1 international bestseller Ian Rankin, an unlucky spy gets one last chance at redemption.

Miles Flint is a spy who has been making some serious mistakes. His last assignment led to the death of a foreign official in London, and after getting too close to his current subject he wound up in police custody. But something is wrong at the agency that has nothing to do with Miles' errors. Why did his last suspect know more about Miles' assignment than Miles did? Why have so many operatives recently resigned? Despite the Director's assurances, Miles begins his own investigation, to the dismay of his colleagues and even his own wife. Then Miles is sent to Belfast on a routine mission, a mission that confirms his darkest suspicions--and threatens his life.

  • "Fans of Rankin's Inspector Rebus novels ought to enjoy this equally taut, gritty outing." (on Blood Hunt)

    (Entertainment Weekly).

  • "[Rankin]'s so deft at maintaining a breakneck pace, so accomplished at conveying anger turned to fury and so gleeful in itemizing munitions that readers will zip right along as he swings from whodunit to international conspiracy plot to war-story retribution." (on Blood Hunt)
    (Kirkus Reviews).

  • "Rankin's gifts as a writer will have many quickly turning the pages." (on Blood Hunt)
    (Publishers Weekly).
