'Deft, enthralling and intelligent' Kate Atkinson

Lizzie and Evie are inseparable. They walk home from school together, sleep over at each other's houses, even flirt with boys together. And they tell each other everything. Or at least, that's what Lizzie thinks -- until Evie goes missing, and Lizzie suddenly realises their friendship wasn't quite what she thought.

A novel about two young girls discovering their sexuality; about fathers and daughters; about family and friendship; about jealousy, secrets and lies, The End of Everything is a powerful reminder that things aren't always what they seem.

Of all of Forsyth's books, this one is the most spy-centred. It is set in one of his most favorite time periods, the very late stages of the Cold War, when the "old guard" of field hardened agents are being replaced by politically opportunistic bureaucrats, a breed that Forsyth holds in obvious contempt. Not up to the calibre of "Avenger" or "The Fourth Protocol" but an entertaining read for anyone who enjoys a good spy novel.
