One night on a lonely marina, ex-agent Tarp peace is disturbed by an old disgraced collegue, John Carrington. Before he knows it, he’s been dragged back into the fold.
The head of the US Research Bureau, Carl Reiser, was killed – murdered in an apparent mugging. But Resier’s replacement, Molly Coffer believes otherwise. She wants Tarp to discover what really happened – although her gung ho attitude is nothing but suspicious to Tarp.
It seems though Coffer was on to something. Reiser had developed a ‘dangerous hobby’, although outside the euphemism, few have little clue what Reiser’s dangerous hobby even was. Whatever it was, it goes all the way back into Reiser’s murky doings in Belize, Central America. And as Tarp digs deeper, it seems Reiser’s life and death is involved in a plot of international scale…
Set in the latter years of the cold war, George Bartram’s novel is a chilling tale centred on revenge and deceit. A dark and clever espionage thriller, The Sun is Bleeding is perfect for fans of Eric Clark and John le Carre.
