Red Joan

by Jennie Rooney - £7.99  Vintage (2014)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780099575733 | ISBN 10: 0099575736

Cambridge University in 1937 is awash with ideas and idealists to unworldly Joan it is dazzling.
 
After a chance meeting with Russian-born Sonya and Leo, Joan is swept up in the glamour and energy of the duo, and finds herself growing closer and closer to them both.
 
But allegiance is a slippery thing. Out of university and working in a government ministry with access to top-secret information, Joan finds her loyalty tested as she is faced with the most difficult question of all: what price would you pay to remain true to yourself?

"A gripping, emotional and expertly plotted spy novel of the Cold War, inspired by a real story. Beautifully written and clever"
(Kate Mosse)
