Box 88 Summary

Box 88 by Charles Cumming

An organisation that doesn't exist. A spy that can't be caught.

Years ago, a spy was born...

1989: The Cold War will soon be over, but for BOX 88, a top secret spying agency, the espionage game is heating up. Lachlan Kite is sent to France to gather intelligence on the Lockerbie bombing. What he uncovers is terrifying...

Now he faces the deadliest decision of his life...

2020: Kite has been taken captive and brutally tortured. He now has a choice: reveal the truth about what happened in France thirty years earlier - or watch his family die.

In a battle unlike anything he has faced before, Kite must use all his skills to stay alive.
