Declare
Declare | Tim Powers
3 posts | 4 read | 2 to read
As a young double agent infiltrating the Soviet spy network in Nazi-occupied Paris, Andrew Hale finds himself caught up in a secret, even more ruthless war. Two decades later, in 1963, he will be forced to confront again the nightmarethat has haunted his adult life: a lethal unfinished operation code-named Declare. From the corridors of Whitehall to the Arabian desert, from post-war Berlin to the streets of Cold War Moscow, Hale's desperate quest draws him into international politics and gritty espionage tradecraft -- and inexorably drives Hale, the fiery and beautiful Communist agent Elena Teresa Ceniza-Bendiga, and Kim Philby, mysterious traitor to the British cause, to a deadly confrontation on the high glaciers of Mount Ararat, in the very shadow of the fabulous and perilous Ark.

John le Carré meets H.P. Lovecraft and the Arabian Nights tales. I don‘t read much genre fiction these days. I am very happy I picked this up. Recommended to fans of genre fantasy, cold war/spy thrillers, and horror.

#booktober #supernaturalbeings rather than go with a more traditional creature I thought I would go with a story of spies and Djinn's. The protagonist was a SOE executive in WW2, during which time he first encountered the supernatural. Years later he is reactivated and drawn into Cold War politics and the defection of Kim Philby a defection inspired by control of Djinn - beings are forces of great malevolence which must be appeased.
