Looking for a good read during lockdown, here are a few I would recommend,
Box 88 by Charles Cumming - this is a brilliant political thriller. It goes backwards and forwards in time from the 1980's where the main character, Lachlan Kite is recruited as a spy by a teachers at his school, and sent to France to gather intelligence on an Iranian businessman thought to have been involved in the Lockerbie bombing....to the present where he has been kidnapped and tortured by Iranian Intelligence to reveal the truth about what happened in France. It was one of those novels that you were sorry to finish and wished it would go on longer.
The Searcher by Tan French - this is a really enjoyable suspense story which is set in and Irish Village. It centers around a retired Chicago police officer who sets up house in the west of Ireland and over time is roped into finding out what happened a local Kid, Trey's brother.
