Pattern of Death by Peter George
Pattern of Death is a twisted spy thriller which embraces the echoing heights of the sky, nefarious nightclubs of London, and quaint 1950s English countryside.
Driscoll, an unconventional man – who believes that the ends always justified the means – is called in to combat foreign agents, but not before many people have died, and others have been revealed as something very different to their supposed identities.
This book rejoices in the violent pattern of death caused by mistrust, jingoism and the need to stay alive.
