BOOK

The Spanish Game

By Charles Cumming

St. Martin's

$24.95

BASIC STORY:

This sequel to "A Spy by Nature" follows Brit Alec Milius, a former spy who fights paranoia and bad habits to get back in the game after a high-ranking official for the Basque separatist group ETA goes missing -- and that's just the beginning.

SAMPLE GRAB:

"The conspiracy goes something like this: Kitson knew that I would not be able to resist coming to Valdelcubo, so he tipped off Zulaika -- who is a source for MI6 -- and hopes, in the long term, that the Spanish press will frame me for Arenaza's murder."

-- The plot thickens
