James Klugmann appears as a shadowy figure in the legendary history of the Cambridge spies. As both mentor and friend to Donald Maclean, Guy Burgess and others, Klugmann was the man who manipulated promising recruits deemed ripe for conversion to the communist cause. This perception of him was reinforced following the release of his MI5 file and the disclosure of Soviet intelligence files in Moscow, which revealed he played the key part in the recruitment of John Cairncross, the 'fifth man', as well as his pivotal war-time role in the Special Operations Executive in shifting Churchill and the allies to support Tito and the communist partisans in Yugoslavia. In this book, Geoff Andrews reveals Klugmann's story in full for the first time, uncovering the motivations, conflicts and illusions of those drawn into the world of communism and the sacrifices they made on its behalf.

In a cave amid ancient Indian ruins lies the body of a senior scientist from the nuclear weapons laboratories at Los Alamos. His skull has been crushed, his throat slit, and a line of blood in the form of a serpent has been traced on his forehead. At his feet are rare tribal prayer sticks. Local police see a ritual slaying intended to scare off Anglos trading in religious Indian artifacts. But federal investigators speculate about a far more sinister possibility: that the victim was violently purged from an espionage network peddling secret space war technology to the Soviets. To the FBI, this conspiracy will stop at nothing, certainly not the murder of one man. For physicist David Parker, the bizarre killing of his colleague is at first an annoying distraction from his intensive work on a revolutionary defense laser shield and the need to justify it to himself and to reluctant members of Congress. Yet all too quickly he finds himself the target of a ruthlessly expert setup—complete with planted evidence and an intricate computer trail leading directly to his own terminal, making him appear both a murderer and a spy. Unknowingly, Parker is assisted by reservation policeman Thomas Reyes, a Pueblo Indian and ex-Marine who is rediscovering his people's sacred beliefs and rites, but knows, in this case, that he must use both his wits and his knowledge of the Anglo world to find the murderer. The two men will be brought together by Parker's young son, an imaginative child who believes that the violation of Pueblo taboos has unleashed the "shadow man," the killer who has appeared as no more than a shadow against a cave wall. Together they must follow this elusive evidence into a world of ancient myths and black markets, politics, intrigue, and high-tech weaponry … to the shocking, terrifying truth behind the ultimate purposes of the New Age research at Los Alamos.

Foreign correspondent James Ryan was there whenever the world changed: in the Middle East, in the Balkans, in the former Soviet bloc. But now he can't remember these events; he can't recall anything long-term, except the summer of his fifteenth year following his mother's death. It was the summer his father told him to call him Kurt. The summer the mysterious and enchanting Vera burst into their lonely, quiet lives. The summer his own world opened, then irrevocably changed. James, at fifty-two, suffers from a severe case of early onset Alzheimer's. The novel unravels James's predicament through the clear glimpses he retains of that long ago summer, and through the desperate attempts of his wife and his nurse to bring him back to the present, if only for stolen moments. Each has her motives: his wife trying not to lose the man with whom she shared so much - wars, death, love, loss of a child, history. And his nurse, the half sister he never knew he had, needing James’s adolescent memory to understand the biological father and mother she never met. Told from the perspective of a man betrayed by his own mind, Shadow Man is a novel of identity and suspense that travels across continents and deep into the pasts that make us each who we are. It explores the power of memory to heal and to mask, and of the limits of unconditional love. Set in Philly and the eastern shore of yesteryear, in the Middle East, and throughout Eastern Europe, Fleishman's trademark descriptive but spare lyricism shines. Shadow Man is a touching and haunting novel perhaps most similar to The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, though it is a work of fiction. From the Trade Paperback edition.
