"A bit of a masterpiece... reminded me of John Le Carré in its very plausible complexity, but a lot more engaging and exciting." — Alan Moore (Watchmen, V for Vendetta, Batman: The Killing Joke)

THE ORIGINAL GRAPHIC NOVEL THAT INSPIRED THE MOVIE!

November 1989. MI6 spy Lorraine Broughton was sent to Berlin to investigate the death of another agent, and the disappearance of a list revealing every spy working there. She found a powder keg of mistrust, assassinations and bad defections that ended with the murder of MI6's top officer, as the Berlin Wall was torn down. Now Lorraine has returned from the Cold War's coldest city, to tell her story. And nothing is what it seems.

Don't miss the thrilling sequel, The Coldest Winter, available now.

"A world of heavy shadow and blurred motivation, filled with doubt, cruelty, and prejudice... delivers exactly the kind of strong medicine fans of the best espionage literature crave."

– Greg Rucka (Stumptown, The Old Guard)

"Terrific stuff: a taut, smart journey back to the dying days of the Cold War, with all the igenious double-crosses and twists one could hope for."

– Jeremy Duns (Free Agent)

"So James Bond had better watch his back, because there's a new MI6 superspy in town who's about to take over Hollywood, and her name is Lorraine Broughton."

– Bustle
