The Oxford gambit by Joseph Hone ( Book )
5 editions published between 1980 and 2013 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Bored and broke, Marlow quits retirement to search for a mole within MI6 It’s springtime in Scotland, and an aging spy is tending to his bees. Smoke rises from his bellows as he looks in on the colony for the first time since winter. When his wife goes to check on him, the bellows are still smoking but her husband has disappeared. He may be dead, he may be kidnapped—or he may have gone over to the other side. To locate the missing beekeeper, the secret service turns to Peter Marlow, a veteran agent who is finding retirement no substitute for life in the field. He soon discovers a byzantine Russian conspiracy, of which the vanished spy is either the architect or the victim, operating deep within British intelligence. In the shadows of this secretive government agency, there are more pressing dangers than the sting of a frightened honeybee. The Oxford Gambit is the third book in the Peter Marlow Mystery series, which also includes The Sixth Directorate and The Valley of the Fox
The private sector by Joseph Hone ( Book )
10 editions published between 1971 and 2014 in English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
To find an old friend, a past-his-prime spy steps into a war zone When Henry Edwards recruited him to work as an intelligence officer, Peter Marlow was young enough that espionage seemed romantic. They were in Cairo during the Suez Crisis, two young spies haunting dinner parties and back alleys in search of morsels of information that were never as important as they seemed. A decade later, espionage has lost its sheen, and Henry confesses to Peter that he’s considering resignation. A few days later, he’s gone. Is Henry dead, or is he planning to defect? Either way, the service wants him buried. Peter is sent to Cairo in search of his old friend. But as war looms over Israel and the Arab states, and President Nasser’s life comes under threat, Peter’s task becomes more challenging than he would like. Espionage is a young man’s game, and more than ever before, he feels close to the grave. The Private Sector is the first book in the Peter Marlow Mystery series, which also includes The Sixth Directorate and The Valley of the Fox
The sixth directorate by Joseph Hone ( Book )
12 editions published between 1975 and 2014 in English and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Peter Marlow goes undercover to infiltrate the KGB The Soviet intelligence agency’s worst nightmare has come true: Besides the five directorates that oversee its operations, there lurks a sixth—a shadow directorate that may be plotting a coup against the Communist Party. Disruption of the KGB might spell trouble for Moscow, but for the British Intelligence, chaos in the Soviet Union means a chance to infiltrate. To make the most of the opportunity, Her Majesty’s intelligence service turns to Peter Marlow, a disgraced former spy who has spent the last four years in jail. He is given his freedom in exchange for his espionage service. Peter assumes the mantle of George Graham, a KGB agent with more secrets than he’s prepared to handle. The Sixth Directorate is the second book in the Peter Marlow Mystery series, which also includes The Private Sector and The Valley of the Fox
The valley of the fox by Joseph Hone ( Book )
8 editions published between 1982 and 2013 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Driven from his home, a former spy disappears into the wilderness After decades in the British Intelligence, Peter Marlow no longer has the heart for conflict. He retires to the countryside with his second wife, Laura, and her daughter, Clare, an eleven-year-old autistic girl who reminds Peter what he spent all those years fighting for. But Peter’s past is not through with him—a killer has come to seek revenge for a long-forgotten feud. His bullet misses Peter but strikes Laura, destroying in an instant what had taken Peter a lifetime to build. With Clare in tow, Peter disappears into the woods, going underground while he plans his revenge. Armed only with a bow, camouflage, and his knowledge of the surrounding woods, Peter prepares to confront his old enemy. Although he’s lost his appetite for espionage, he will risk everything to protect Clare. The Valley of the Fox is the fourth book in the Peter Marlow Mystery series, which also includes The Private Sector and The Sixth Directorate
