‘A spellbinder … Desperately exciting.’ Daily Telegraph

Methuen is a seasoned British secret agent, weary of espionage missions and desperately in need of a break – but he can’t resist an assignment to investigate dirty dealings in the Balkans. A fellow British spy has been murdered in Serbia by a guerrilla gang of underground royalists, the White Eagles – but when Methuen arrives, he soon finds himself in a life-and-death struggle, pursued by both the royalists and Communists alike …

Inspired by Lawrence Durrell’s own experiences in the British Foreign Office, White Eagles Over Serbia is a classic Cold War espionage thriller: a white-knuckle adventure perfect for fans of John le Carre and Graham Greene.
