The Spy Game: Book summary and reviews of The Spy Game by Georgina Harding
The Spy Game Summary
On a freezing January morning in 1961, eight-year-old Annas mother disappears into the fog. A kiss that barely touches Annas cheek, a rumble of exhaust and a blurred wave through an icy windshield, and her mother is gone. Looking back, Anna will wish that she could have paid more attention to the facts of that day. The adult world shrouds the loss in silence, tidies the issue of death away along with the things that her mother left behind. And her memories will drift and settle like the fog that covered the car.
