How to Betray your Country by James Wolff front cover

The second novel in English author James Wolfe’s Traitor trilogy examines a man’s mid-life crisis. August Drummond lost his mind somewhat after the death of his wife, and his career in the British secret service went up in smoke shortly afterwards.
