Part Blackhawk Down, part The Riddle of the Sands, this is an extraordinarily gripping non-fiction thriller, written by a former MI6 officer.
Harry Ferguson is a former MI6 officer and an undercover agent for the National Investigation Service (NIS). He has written two books about his experiences with the NIS- Kilo 17 (2003) and Lima 3 (2005). In 2005, he starred alongside Mike Baker of the CIA in the BBC2/3 series Spy and he also wrote the book of the series- Spy - A Handbook.
A fascinating, minutely researched and ground breaking new book ...
which turns out to be a tale of adventure, honour and raw courage
quite as exciting as anything found in fiction or on the silver
screen -- Andrew Roberts * Daily Mail *
Ferguson's account of both sets of operations is exciting and his enthusiasm is infectious -- Alan Judd * Sunday Telegraph *
This is an excellent book and thoroughly recommended * Journal of the Victoria Cross Society *
Excellent, entertaining and informative ... It is genuinely hard to put down * Navy News *
Good, pacy stuff and impressively researched -- Professor Keith Jeffery, official historian of MI6
