This conclusion focuses on the theme of suspicion as the narrative and heuristic bridge connecting espionage fiction and exile. Suspicion drives characters and plots and serves as an over-determined metaphor, designating nations, organisations, ideologies and individuals as agents as well as objects of distrust. The chapter argues that the British fictions studied in this book express the urge to provide counter-narratives to the casual prejudices, wilful ignorance and silences that constituted official and general responses to political and racialized victims of exile in their times and that reverberate today.
