Summary

After a lifetime working with BOX 88, the transatlantic counterintelligence agency so covert that not even the CIA knows of its existence, master spy Lachlan Kite has made plenty of enemies. And now, as the director of the outfit's operations in the UK, one of those past enemies has him in their sights...

1993: Student Lachlan Kite is sent to post-Soviet Russia, a spy in the guise of a language teacher. Embedded in the town of Voronezh, Kite's mission is to extract a chemical weapons scientist before the man's groundbreaking research falls into the wrong hands and shuttle him across the border to freedom in Ukraine. But Kite's mission soon goes wrong and he is left stranded in a hostile city with a former KGB officer on his trail.

2020: Thirty years after that dangerous mission, Kite discovers that its outcome put his name on the notorious "JUDAS" list--a record of enemies of Russia who have been targeted for assassination. Kite's fight for survival takes him to Dubai, a city crawling with international intelligence officers, where he enters into a deadly game of cat-and-mouse with the Russian secret state.

The newest installment in the saga of "a spy for the 21st century" (Daily Mail) combines two pulse-pounding narratives that show why Cumming is among the top tier of espionage authors examining the reality of spycraft in the post-Cold War era.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The assassination of a former Soviet general living in Connecticut sends a red flag to Lachlan Kite, UK head of BOX 88, an espionage agency so far off the grid that neither the CIA nor MI6 knows it exists. The Russians, Kite learns, are methodically assassinating the people whose names appear on something called the JUDAS list, made up mainly of Russian nationals who defected to the West--except that Kite's name is also on the list. Why? The answer lies in an assignment Kite carried out in 1993, the exfiltration of Soviet bioweapons expert Yuri Aranov. The job was successful, but it was not without the bane of a spy's existence, collateral damage, and now the repercussions from that damage are threatening Aranov, Kite, and Kite's former girlfriend, Martha Raine. As in the series opener, BOX 88 (2022), Cumming brilliantly jumps from the episode in Kite's past that is driving the crisis in the present. To keep Aranov and Kite safe, the BOX 88 team must confront the Russian spymaster whom Kite outwitted 30 years ago, Mikhail Gromik, and the elaborate plan the team conceives to do so takes place in Dubai, a city as teeming with spies as Lisbon was during WWII. Combining dexterous plotting in the manner of Daniel Silva with full-throttle action and character building that whets our appetite to learn more about Kite and his colleagues, Cumming is in top form here."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "The main action of Cumming's ambitious sequel to 2021's Box 88 opens with the assassination in Connecticut of 77-year-old Saul Kaszeta, a former Russian general. Kaszeta "had been a source for BOX 88, a top-secret Anglo-American spy agency, for the final nine years of his military career." To Lachlan Kite, a career BOX 88 agent, this appears to be a reprisal hit carried out by the FSB, and it brings up a highly personal memory for Kite--his successful 1993 exfiltration of Yuri Aranov, a bioweapons scientist. Flashbacks provide a gripping account of Aranov's exfiltration, which launched Kite's BOX 88 career and earned him a lifelong enemy, Mikhail Gromik, a Russian intelligence officer who tried to prevent Aranov's defection. Kite realizes that both he and Aranov are in danger--their names are on the JUDAS list, "targeted for reprisal assassinations by Moscow." In a tour de force of tradecraft and suspense set in Dubai, the book's second half follows an intricate plan to ensure Aranov's safety and neutralize Gromik. Cumming does a superb job creating portraits of people, eras, and places. This powerful spy thriller should win the talented author new fans. Agent: Luke Janklow, Janklow & Nesbit Assoc. (Nov.)"
