WAITING FOR SUNRISE - William Boyd
This starts in Vienna in 1913 when a young English actor, Lysander Rief, meets "the intensely beautiful Hettie Bull. One year later, home in London, Lysander finds himself entangled in the dangerous web of wartime intelligence- a world of sex, scandal and spies that is slowly, steadily, permeating every corner of his life."
The above blurb makes this sound like a lurid penny dreadful but this is a well constructed thriller that keeps you guessing to the end.
Its intelligent and unpredictable. Recommended.
