    We have been here before. William Boyd's story is a kind of serious Anglicized version of "The Long Kiss Goodnight", with its revelation that a nice English mother is really a top spy being sought by sinister types who want her silenced. However, Boyd manages his plot nicely, and he borrows the parallel-timezone structure of "The Godfather, Part Two" to offer us two stories simultaneously - Eva's training as a spy for the British in 1940 shown alongside the efforts of her daughter Ruth in 1976 to find out the truth about her. Eva is a pretty interesting character, Ruth a rather unlikeable one with very little subtlety. Anyone who's read a lot of spy stories will find a lot of familiar elements here, but it's neatly done. You won't believe the recreation of a 1940s America still clinging to its neutrality, though.moreless
