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…
