The Reckoning Summary

The Reckoning by Ted Allbeury

Katya Felinska is a beautiful and talented photo-journalist, passionately committed to championing the rights of the oppressed. Max Inman is a brilliant and incisive political journalist. They have been lovers for almost twenty years. But Max is also an undercover agent, one of MI6's most important sources on the real attitudes and thinking of Russian and German leaders in the tense months leading up to the disintegration of the Iron Curtain and the fall of the Berlin Wall. Inman's source is a KGB officer. The two men trade information in the interests of world peace. Then things go wrong. Horribly wrong. And Katya must summon all the courage and ingenuity she possesses to try to save the man she loves.

The Reckoning Reviews

'Allbeury's people are real in the sense that Greene's or Maugham's are' -- H R F Keating, The Times 'The most consistently inventive of our novelists of espionage, the one other thriller writers point to as the finest craftsman among them' -- Guardian 'No one since le Carre has mapped the lonely lunar landscape of espionage better than Allbeury' -- Observer 'The strength of Allbeury's novels is in his understanding of what makes spies and their masters tick. His characters, regardless of which side they're on, are always humanely portrayed and utterly plausible' -- Scotsman 'The doyen of contemporary spy writers' -- Daily Telegraph
