The first two books in the richly atmospheric and chillingly plausible Alec Milius series announced the arrival of Charles Cumming as heir apparent to masters like John le Carré and Len Deighton. A SPY BY NATURE Alec Milius is young, smart, and ambitious. He also has a talent for deception. He is working in a dead-end job when a chance encounter leads him to MI6, the elite British Secret Intelligence Service, handing him an opportunity to play center-stage in a dangerous game of espionage. In his new line of work, Alec finds that the difference between the truth and a lie can mean the difference between life and death--and he is having trouble telling them apart. Caught between British and American Intelligence, Alec finds himself threatened and alone, unable to confide in even his closest friend. His life as a spy begins to exact a terrible price, both on himself and on those around him. A SPY BY NATURE tells the gripping story of a young man driven by ruthless ambition who finds himself chasing not just success, but survival. THE SPANISH GAME Six years ago, Alec Milius was released by MI6 after a disastrous operation. His world shattered, Milius has been living in Madrid, attempting to quietly rebuild his life. But all his plans come crashing down when the head of a separatist movement goes missing, and Milius is lured back into the world of espionage. This time, though, Milius is forced to work alone - with no back-up, no support, and no one to save him should something go wrong. And in an operation like this, something is certain to go wrong. Horribly wrong.

It included match figures of 14 wickets for 99 runs at Nottingham - a feat only surpassed against Australia by Wilfred Rhodes, Hedley Verity and Jim Laker.
