Sleeping Partners
by Alan Goodare

It is the summer of 1996. The Cold War is supposedly over. But in a sleepy English village the local doctor is about to stumble
across a dark secret that has been buried for over twenty years…

Teddy Burton is facing a mid-life crisis, during which he questions his own professional ability and his wife’s fidelity. He sets out on a trail of discovery that leads to a midnight rendezvous on the streets of Cambridge with the mysterious Mr. Pritchard, who reveals a truth far stranger than anything Teddy could have imagined.

As the doctor’s life begins to unravel around him, he becomes increasingly drawn into a dangerous world of intrigue, spies and the ultimate betrayal, at the centre of which sits the menacing figure of the man known as 'Victor'. Having found that his past is built on sand, what does the future hold for Teddy, the quiet, unassuming doctor, now that he knows too much?

Sleeping Partners is not only a story about espionage, but it also shows one man’s descent from loving husband and respected professional, living a comfortable and unremarkable life, into a strange and frightening world in which he encounters deceit and betrayal. It is the tragedy of this personal journey that sets Sleeping Partners apart from other books of this genre and which broadens its appeal to a wider reading audience.
