Product description

Review

An incredible true life spy story...Every word ramps up the tension as you're drawn deeper into the danger

Mail on Sunday

If any spy writer were to put it in a novel, it would not be believed. But, blow by blow, trick by trick, it is all in Macintyre's book -- Fredrick Forsyth

He writes like a novelist. One of the last chapters is as tense as any thriller. No wonder le Carré liked it ―
Daily Express
