South Atlantic Requiem Edward Wilson

South Atlantic Requiem

Set during the Falklands Conflict, this thrilling spy novel sees the return of Wilson’s spy hero Catesby, sent to Peru amidst Downing Street defence cuts and pressure from Reagan’s Whitehouse in order negotiate a last minute Falklands deal with the Argentine Junta. When, just twelve hours after new peace terms are agreed, the ship Belgrano is torpedoed, Catesby is left shocked and disillusioned and is forced to uncover the governmental and political lies that sit at the heart of the conflict... 

'On a par with John le Carré ... it’s that good'


We attempt to second-guess both Catesby and his crafty creator, and are soundly outfoxed at every turn…Wilson is now firmly ensconced in the new firmament of espionage writing’
