Revue de presse

IT'S ON A PAR WITH JOHN LE CARRÉ....IT S THAT GOOD ... As a novel this has a wonderful feel the taste, the texture and the smell of authenticity. --Tribune

The glory days of the Cold War are evoked in The Darkling Spy by Edward Wilson, who boldly ventures into the territory so well trodden by John le Carré. The professionalism of the novel, so rich in detailed perspectives, it's characters so sturdily grounded, enables it to outgrow the spy-thrillers more wearisome conventions, while delivering strong emotional charges. --Times Literary Supplement

A thriller of page-turning brilliance --I Love a Mystery

Présentation de l'éditeur

London, 1956. A generation of British spies are haunted by the ghosts of friends turned traitor. A book that will change the reader's view of the Cold War forever.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Masterful work... 9 août 2015
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I read this book before reading 'The Midnight Swimmer' and on balance I prefer this novel, although both are superb and thoroughly recommended. The research that goes into these books must be phenomenal (see references at the end of each book), and Mr Wilson being ex-US Army Special Forces gives an authenticity no 'outsider' could possibly achieve... For me, he writes spy novels on a par with Le Carre, in fact I prefer Mr Wilson's writing style. I tore through this book; I defy anyone to put it down once started!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Dark, suspenseful, cerebral story 4 août 2011
Par Lynn Harnett - Publié sur Amazon.com
Wilson's Cold War sequel to The Envoy opens in 1956 at Bertolt Brecht's funeral in the Soviet sector of Berlin. William Catesby attends as a diplomat from Bonn's British embassy, but he's not fooling anyone. He's a spy, as are half the people at the funeral.

He would have preferred a career in the Foreign Service but his socialist bent and working-class origins scotched that. They make him a bit suspect in London too, but his boss, Henry Bone, has plans for him and Catesby, while a bit of a cynic, is a loyal one.

But it seems everyone is a bit suspect in London, Moscow, Berlin, Bonn, Washington, wherever. Much of this has to do with the legacy of spymaster defectors like Philby, Maclean and Burgess. The world, it seems, is full of spies, double agents and triple agents. Wilson makes sure we never quite know who's who as Catesby pursues an increasingly dangerous path tracking down a particularly cruel and slippery agent, codenamed Butterfly.

The trail takes him through the blood and passion of Hungary's short-lived revolt and the jumpy Berlin of pre-wall days, while exploring a European anti-Americanism that has its roots (well, at least its 1950s roots) in the conviction that the Americans and Soviets will fight out their atomic war to Europe's destruction, not their own.

A tense, cerebral, dark story, Wilson's latest will appeal to fans of John Le Carré.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent novel 19 mai 2014
Par Sophie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
The Darkling Spy is an excellent novel – full of suspense and very well written. As a Cold War spy novel, this book needed a lot of research but the author did that so well. It was tense, the settings strong and effective and the complex plot gripped me instantly but also got stronger as the book went on.

Edward Wilson’s characters are always great to read – discovering who is who and separating the (minimal) trustworthy characters from the ones ready to betray is always enjoyable and Wilson weaves the twists in brilliantly. Catesby was a likeable character which is more than I’ve come to expect from this genre of novel. He was loyal and easy to root for throughout his mission to uncover Butterfly.

Stand out parts in The Darling Spy for me included the interaction between Catesby and Bone which was very entertaining and brought a bit of light relief to a darker plot. I also loved how strong the research of settings and history felt – it didn’t distract from the novel and instead, was more interesting and intriguing. I imagine, although this is fiction, that people who lived in the age this book was set in will have had memories brought back from some of the events during this era too.

The Darkling Spy is the third Edward Wilson novel I’ve read and my favourite so far. The plot was strong and captivating and the characterisation, as ever, was flawless. Starting this late at night, I couldn’t put it down and was disappointed when it ended yet looking forward to Wilson’s next book, The Midnight Swimmer. A great novel.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another great Cold War spy thriller from Edward Wilson 27 octobre 2014
Par Recitatio - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Although it stands well on its own, it helps to have read The Envoy first because some of the characters and action are continued from the earlier book. New action and players add different perspectives and additional information to Kit Fournier's story - The Envoy of the first book. We are also introduced to a new character - British SIS agent based in Berlin, William Catesby. Most of the action takes place in East and West Berlin where, in the years before the Wall, movement between the two sectors was relatively unhindered.

With everyone spying on everyone else, and as another reviewer has mentioned, the difficulty of distinguising information from disinformation and those will support you from those who will betray you makes makes reading this novel a bit like walking on eggshells - you never know where the next bomb or bullet will land and who will be left standing at the end.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The Darkling Spy 5 février 2015
Par Cphe - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
A tautly woven espionage novel set during the Cold War. This is quite a dense read, nicely atmospheric for the time period and has some excellent characterisation. I have to say that I found the second half of the book more compelling, events moved at a much faster pace. The plot is multi layered and complex which I enjoyed and I also enjoyed not being certain of who really were the "good guys.".
I'll read more novels by this author, I like their style.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 characters scheme and plan and lay waste to your expectations until 5 octobre 2014
Par Sarah Gadd - Publié sur Amazon.com
Edward Wilson is the current master of the subtle spy genre. While he hypnotizes you with his prose, characters scheme and plan and lay waste to your expectations until, at the end, you realise you've been played just like on of Mr. Wilson's doomed small-time spies. The darkling spy is magnificent.
