Jack of Spies

Jack of Spies ARC and Poster giveaway

Jack of Spies

These days I get very excited when something new comes out from Soho Press. I have yet to be anything less than thrilled with their books. Next up is Jack of Spies by David Downing. If you think you know what spy novels are like, think again. This one takes place before WWI, before there was an intelligence community. There are no safe houses, there are no dead drops, there is no tradecraft. There's just a guy named Jack McColl with a talent for languages, improvising his way around a rapidly changing world, trying to learn anything he can to help the Royal Navy.

Sign up today for a chance to win an ARC and/or poster!
