What are you reading?

Sweet Tooth by Ian McEwan.

In a nutshell?

In 1972, Serena Frome, the daughter of an Anglican bishop, is recruited by British Intelligence to get close to an author, called Tom Haley, to counter Communist propaganda during the Cold War.

Why read it?

Sweet Tooth isn't really a spy novel , but a meta-fiction about writers and writing, about the lies implicit in the relationship between the novelist and the reader.

Smith's most recent crime novel is 'Capture', Serpent's Tail, Exclusive Books, R199
