Podrobný popis:

Publikace: Jack of Spies - David Downing. It is 1913, and those who follow the news closely can see the world

is teetering on the brink of war. Jack McColl, a Scottish car

salesman with an uncanny ear for languages, has always hoped to

make a job for himself as a spy. As his sales calls take him from

city to great city Hong Kong to Shanghai to San Francisco to New

York he moonlights collecting intelligence for His Majesty s Navy,

but British espionage is in its infancy and Jack has nothing but a

shoestring budget and the very tenuous protection of a boss in

faraway London. He knows, though, that a geopolitical catastrophe

is brewing, and now is both the moment to prove himself and the

moment his country needs him most.Unfortunately, this is also the

moment he begins to realize what his aspiration might cost him. He

understands his life is at stake when activities in China suddenly

escalate from innocent data-gathering and casual strolls along

German military concessions to arrest warrants and knife attacks.

Meanwhile, a sharp, vivacious American suffragette journalist has

wiled her way deep into his affections, and it is not long before

he realizes that her Irish American family might be embroiled in

the Irish Republican movement Jack s bosses are fighting against.

How can he choose between his country and the woman he loves? And

would he even be able to make such a choice without losing both?" Publikace: Jack of Spies - David Downing. FIRST IN A STUNNING NEW WW1 SPY SERIES FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE BESTSELLING 'STATION' NOVELS Jack McColl is a globe-trotting salesman for a luxury car firm. He is also a part-time spy for the fledgling Secret Service on the eve of the First World War, doing London's bidding wherever internal or external enemies threaten the security of the British Empire. As 1913 ends he is in China, checking out the German naval base at Tsingtao between automobile demonstrations in Peking and Shanghai. Caitlin Hanley is a young Irish-American journalist with the sort of views that most British men would find dangerously advanced. McColl is no exception, but once captivated he finds himself unwilling to give her up -- even when Caitlin's radical politi and family connections threaten to compromise his undeclared career as a spy. Then the pair become involved in a plot that threatens the Empire in its hour of greatest need . . .
