Restless: A Novel by William Boyd

William Boyd’s fascination with what becomes of a spy brings us Restless, a fascinating story of Eva Delectorskaya, recruited in 1939 by the English. 36 years later, concerned that she is in danger, she tells her story to her daughter, who is dumbfounded, having always believed her mother to be Sally Gilmartin. The story is suspenseful and details of an unknown episode between the U.S. and Britain are interesting. Eva has lost none of her cunning over the years, Ruth discovers. Wonderfully readable!
