James Naughtie: When Knowledge Could Be Deadly image

James Naughtie has witnessed much political skulduggery as a special correspondent for BBC News, and he’s put this knowledge to use in his gripping spy thriller series. Today, Naughtie introduces The Spy Across the Water: the third outing for the Flemyng brothers, bound together through espionage and embroiled in the Cold War. Hear Naughtie discuss this fascinating brainteaser which spans the streets of Washington DC and the Scottish Highlands. In conversation with Ruth Wishart.
