Best new spy novels 2017
Thriller Ratings – The Real Book SpyThe cast of characters is almost too much to believe: a Russian pop star, a British tabloid veteran, an attorney with mysterious ties to the Kremlin, a Moscow-funded lobbyist running a White House campaign, a real estate scion married into political power, and the son of the soon-to-be President of the United States. But there it is, laid out in emails for all to see in The New York Times , raising a few unavoidable questions: What constitutes a conspiracy? Just what in the hell year is it, anyway? Is the Cold War still on? Spy literature is looking freshly relevant these days. And as you make your way through, rest assured that some enterprising novelist is reading the same news as you and preparing to turn this insanity into a reasonably coherent story, starring the pop singer, the black sheep son, and the Moscow co-opted commander-in-chief.
