Overview

What is loyalty? What is treachery? What does it mean to find that one of your friends is a spy? Loyalties traces the fortunes of a group of friends, some from the Welsh valleys, some from Cambridge, from the Spanish Civil War to the 1984 miners' strike, combining the tension of a first-class thriller with a brilliant analysis of our age.
