Radio: A Reluctant Spy (BBC Radio 4 Afternoon Drama)

reluctant_spy

The BBC are on a a bit of a tear at the moment with their spy stories (what with Restless and Spies of Warsaw.)

This is a three-part radio drama set in modern day (post- Arab Spring) Egypt.

It reminded me a bit of the Honourable Schoolboy by John le Carre – the radio drama at least, as I haven’t read the book.

I really wanted to love it, but found myself getting a bit lost when the story jumped back in time. It is definitely worth a listen – overall I’d rate it “good”.  Maybe I’ll listen to it again.

Let’s hope the BBC continues its good work in the espionage genre…
