This is an auction for SPY: A FORMER SIS OFFICER UNMASKS NEW ZEALAND'S SENSATIONAL COLD WAR SPY AFFAIR, by C H Kit Bennetts.

Subtitled: "A former SIS officer unmasks New Zealand's sensational Cold War spy affair".

"In 1975 Kit Bennetts was one of the youngest officers ever to serve in the New Zealand Security Intelligence Service. Fresh out of training, on routine surveillance duty one night he followed a big Mercedes from the Soviet Embassy, and witnessed a meeting between a KGB officer and an unknown man. That man turned out to be Dr William Sutch was arrested and charged with passing information to the Russians. A spectacular trial ensued - New Zealand's only espionage trial, ever - at which Sutch was acquitted, only to die seven months later. Thirty years on, fascination with the case and speculation about whether Sutch was a KGB mole endures. SPY is the first time an SIS officer has ever gone public. Written in a fast-paced, humorous style, and full of spycraft, it details how the SIS got their man, only to lose the case against him in court. Palmerston ?North is the star of this book: a city of shadowy rendezvous points, dark alleys and winding streets through which the Russians raced in their big European cars, with the SIS in hot pursuit."
