In contrast to the classical detective story, the spy novel tends to be
considered a suspect, less literary genre. While previous studies have focused
on its historical, thematic and ideological dimensions, this critical work
seeks to distinguish British espionage fiction based on its unique narrative
form, which is typically elliptical, oblique and recursive. Featured works
include eighteen novels by Eric Ambler, Graham Greene, Len Deighton, John le
Carre, Stella Rimington, and Charles Cumming, most of which exemplify the
existential or serious spy thriller. Half of these texts pertain to the Cold
War era; the other half to its aftermath in the so-called "Age of Terrorism."
