This Cold War historical espionage thriller, teeming with betrayal, duplicity, duty, love and spy craft, is based on a true story. It is realistic, but reality sometimes goes beyond the wildest fantasies... With the world order changing rapidly in the late 1980s, the KGB plants a double agent at the heart of British Intelligence. The West is spared by the collapse, in 1991, of the mighty Soviet Union. Abandoned by his homeland the agent is forced to stay on, executing treacherous missions on behalf of Her Majesty's Secret Service. What never leaves him, however, is his desire for revenge on the KGB bosses who betrayed him. Nor have they forgotten him or the potentially lethal secrets he knows. The spy becomes the hunted. The action takes you from Moscow to London to Manila, Istanbul and beyond, all in a dramatic political setting. This book is for those interested in world affairs, modern history, espionage, politics, psychology and philosophy.
