Julie Tears of Autumn My all-time favorite "spy"novel


message 2: by Geevee (new)

Geevee An interesting list which I enjoyed voting on as it mixes fiction and non-fiction titles, which translates itself into the books themselves too where some non-fiction accounts read just like stories.

For me this is true of Agent Zigzag The True Wartime Story of Eddie Chapman, Lover, Betrayer, Hero, Spy by Ben Macintyre by Ben Macintyre Ben Macintyre which is a fabulous read.


message 3: by Cindy (new)

Cindy I'm glad to see such a diverse mix too. Some non-fiction, some serious spy thriller types, and some pure fantasy, even some for teens.


message 4: by Cecil (new)

Cecil Good mix of books, including many I need to read. I was pleased to see Day of the Jackal, which (my view) is almost the perfect thriller.

I agree! Somewhat forgotten now, and because by Forsyth, somewhat dismissed. But a cracking good story, well paced and fascinating. Well served also by its film adaptation, compactly directed by Fred Zinneman, with the Jackal played by Edward Fox. (Skip the American remake, "Jackal," with Richard Gere and Bruce Willis - junk.)


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I can't remember if I've read the book of that or not; the movie (the 70s one) is a corker.

Asha Seth Sadly, haven't read much on this list, not as yet at-least!


message 8: by Booklovinglady (new)

Booklovinglady Only five on this list that I've read, but at least Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy was already on there :-)


message 9: by Cindy (new)

Cindy That means more new ones for us!

Agree!!! My most favorite novel of all time!!! I might have read it 3-4 times and planning to read again on Kindle.
