Goodbye To an Old Friend (1973)

‘ A thriller in the Greene- Le Carre tradition about a seedy old Etonian working for the Counter- Intelligence in the Home office.’Auberon Waugh, Harpers

‘Admirably clever…if Mr Freemantle can keep up this standard of mystery and of characterisation, then he’ll do very well’ The Times Literary Supplement.

A tense, fast- moving thriller with the action shifting from Moscow to Whitehall and the Sussex countryside. It is a brilliant study of friendship and treachery set against the stark contemporary background of diplomatic intrique and the inhumanity of modern politics.
