Description

‘Some other Forsyth thriller that has you by the throat with plots so finely crafted as to make the cold war’s very darkness visible’ (Daily Mail)
________

Sam McCready is The Deceiver, probably the most Secret Intelligence Service’s most unorthodox and most valued operatives, a legend in his own time. The end of the cold war has, on the other hand, strengthened the hand of the Whitehall mandarins, to whom he turns out about as controllable as Genghis Khan, so Sam is to have his fate determined at a special hearing.

As a part of the proceedings, four of Sam’s key operations are reviewed: a clandestine mission into East Germany in 1985 to contact the highest Russian spy General Pankratin; the second one involving a KGB colonel who wants to defect – but is he genuine? An audacious Gaddafi-inspired plot to ship arms to the IRA; and the fourth when McCready presided over the aftermath of political murder and mayhem within the Caribbean.
________

Former RAF pilot and investigative journalist, Frederick Forsyth defined the brand new thriller when he wrote The Day of the Jackal, described by Lee Child as ‘the book that broke the mould’, with its lightning-paced storytelling, effortlessly cool reality and unique insider information.
