'Unskippable conspiracy-thriller...to be taken in one enjoyable gulp' - Guardian
Germany, 1945. British agent Stephen Felinski is parachuted into Hitler's fast-collapsing empire with orders to reorganize a group of Soviet agents abandoned by Moscow.
Thirty years later, a top British politician defects to the Russians and Felinski is called out of retirement to help - because of a friendship formed among the ruins of Nazi Germany.
The link is The Special Collection, a daring and meticulously planned Soviet attempt to bring social and industrial chaos to Britain. It is already set on its ruthless, violent course and only Stephen Felinski can stop it.
Absolutely absorbing. The author obviously knows the world of intelligence and espionage. - Lord Chalfont, former Minister of State, Foreign Office
