Book reviews - Venetian Blind

Venetian Blind

Author: William Haggard
A secret technology, an old enemy and a traitor selling to the highest bidder: a job for Britain's Security Executive.

For the British government, Negative Gravity is a showcase example of public and private sector partnership, but when a security leak is discovered, the Government fears embarrassing revelations and calls in the Security Executive to find the source and plug it… permanently.

As the trail leads from London to Venice, from impassive civil servants to passionate heiresses, this exotic thriller keeps you hooked.

Venetian Blind is the second novel in William Haggard’s Colonel Russell series of hugely acclaimed Cold War thrillers – now available in digital version for the first time.

For fans of Ian Fleming, John le Carré, Charles Cumming and Frederick Forsyth.
