In New York, what you've got on your iPod can be bad for your health...Tito, a young and athletic Cuban, has been asked to pass iPods to the 'old man' in Washington Square. He doesn't know why and he's not stupid enough to ask, either. But the old man likes to speak Russian, and he knows a great deal about Tito's family; reason enough for Tito to make sure the old man gets what he wants. Across the country in LA, journalist Hollis Henry has been asked to investigate Bobby Chombo, a man who knows the ins and outs of military navigation systems - and who never sleeps in the same space twice. Unfortunately for Hollis and one or two other interested parties - Bobby has very good reasons for not wanting to be found. Reasons that involve iPods and nothing whatsoever to do with music...Spook Country is a thriller of the here and now, of what happens when old spies come out of the woodwork to play one last game.
