Story


Intense and emotionally charged Cold War thriller set in 1974 based on the novel by Alan Judd.

As the three day week, petrol rationing and industrial strife plunge Britain into a state of emergency, MI6 trainee spy Charles Thoroughgood is asked to reconnect with an old university friend, Russian diplomat Viktor Koslov, with a view to 'turning' him. Viktor has his own agenda, though, and reveals a shocking truth about Charles's own family that threatens to derail him, both personally and professionally.

He is catapulted into a dangerous personal odyssey to uncover the truth but finds himself drawn into a lethal KGB plot to mount an attack within the UK. His life is further complicated by a relationship with the wife of another agent, which forces him to realise that betrayal can take many forms.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..everyone in Legacy is rather bloody brilliant..”
by Grace Dent [The Independent]
“..it doesn't quite have the sophistication, the genius and complexity of character and plot (sometimes baffling but so satisfying when you do get any kind of grip), or the feeling that this is actually what it was all like..”
by Sam Wollaston [The Guardian]
“..an enjoyably labyrinthine thriller..”
by Gerard O'Donovan [Daily Telegraph]
