Mikhail Starin, Head of Soviet Intelligence in London, is a ruthless, cold-hearted individual. Known to have killed 24 people, including his own mother, he’s now determined to get his hands on a hard-to-stabilize nuclear formula.

There’s only one thing for British Intelligence to do: send him back to Russia as quickly as possible. They scheme to leak details of a top-level Western military secret – knowing that when the Russians discover the secret is a double cross, Starin is history. Unfortunately there’s only one man available to oversee the job: David Hale; young, honourable, but completely out of his depth.

Rotten with Honour is a Cold War espionage thriller told with the trademark wit of Derek Robinson, bestselling and Booker-shortlisted author of Goshawk Squadron.
