Listing Detail Tabs

Sam McCready is 'The Deceiver', one of the Secret Intelligence Service's most unorthodox and most valued operatives, a legend in his own time. But after seven years in charge of the Dee-Dee Desk (Deception, Disinformation and Psychological Operations) Sam has made some enemies. The end of the Cold War has strengthened the hand of the career mandarins as controllable as Genghis Khan. Having spurned the usual 'non-job' offers, he elects to have his fate decided at a special hearing chaired by Deputy Chief of SIS, Timothy Edwards.

In the course of the hearing, four of Sam's key operations are reviewed. The first concerns his clandestine mission into East Germany in 1985 to trace his German-born agent who has had a complete nervous breakdown. Then in 1986, KGB Colonel Orlov slipped away from a war game on Salisbury Plain and insisted on giving himself up to the CIA's London station. In due course McCready had to be brought in, partly to smooth over the friction between London and Washington but more importantly to help answer the question: was Orlov genuine? The third case involves an audacious Qaddafi-inspired plot to ship arms to the IRA in revenge for his near-assassination in the American bomber raid from Britain in April 1986 And finally there is the case that is still fixed in all their minds, when McCready presided over the aftermath of political murder and mayhem in a small northern Caribbean island. Timothy Edwards had had to clear that one up after McCready had come home a hero.
