    1 thought on “Washington Shadow”

    1. While this was not the typical "cloak and dagger" espionage novel, it provided an interesting view of the changing nature of relations --- both political and economic --- between the U.S. and Britain in the immediate post-Second World War era. A British officer --- Peter Cotton --- is sent from Europe to the U.S. in September 1945 to investigate the imminent breakup of the U.S. wartime intelligence agency, the OSS (Office of Strategic Services). Britain is broke and has sent representatives to W [...]

    2. The second in a series of historical thrillers featuring Peter Cotton, a British Intelligence Officer. Set in Washington at the end of WWII when John Maynard Keynes has come to Washington to strike a 'bail out ' of the English economy after the economic desolation of WWII. Monroe strikes a nice note with historic detail but there's an oomph missing in the thriller part of the equation.

    3. The description of the book is miss leading in the fact that there is no greater Anglo-American conspiracy. The book is also very confusing and adds to many unnecessary characters that serve no point. And to top it all of his friend and girlfriend die and there death is never solved in the book. Would give 0 stars if I could

    4. I picked this up for two reasons: I've got a soft spot for spy fiction set in the 1930s and 40s (the books of Alan Furst for example), and I'm a sucker for fiction set in my hometown of Washington, D.C. I quickly realized that this is the second in a series (preceded by Maze of Cadiz, followed by Icelight) featuring Peter Cotton, a British officer engaged in very loosely delineated espionage work. Indeed, it is that very looseness that is the major of weakness of the book. While the background, [...]

    5. Washington Shadow is the second book in the Peter Cotton series following the exploits of an economics graduate who works as an intelligence officer. Whilst the first book was set in Spain, the second sees Cotton move to Washington DC after his old unit is wound up and he waits to find out if he’s going to be demobbed. Despite winning the war, Britain is on its knees financially and is severely weakened politically with respect to its empire. The nice hook to the story is John Maynard Keynes p [...]

    6. "Beware," says Aesop, "that you do not lose the substance by grasping at the shadow." The thought lingers after closing Aly Monroe's intelligent book. If one ultimately feels a sense of an objective only partially attained, one can but respect a brave and interesting attempt.Peter Cotton is an army major at the end of WW2. With a few months left until demobilisation, he is posted to Washington to join an understaffed and under-resourced Intelligence department. Maynard Keynes is present, attempt [...]

    7. An impressive and fascinating follow up to The Maze of Cadiz, this kept me turning the pages way into the small hours of the morning. Not all the plot strands seem to work out conclusively or convincingly, but as a result the book feels much more realistic. Reminded me a lot of the ambiguities and uncertainties of le Carre, especially The Looking Glass War or The Spy who came in from the Cold.
