AN INTERNATIONAL CONSPIRACY AT THE HEART OF GOVERNMENT
Under Current’s big question goes like this:
Can we believe that no more spy rings have been discovered inside British Government since Philby, Burgess, Maclean, and Blunt in the 1950’s?
While the book is a work of fiction, the political crisis and the use of technology described here are both founded on extensive desk research.
When an old friend, a top anti-corruption blogger, is accused of soliciting young boys, former undercover agent Patrick Cameron smells a rat. His ex-boss at the Security Service, who is looking into the disappearance of two more corruption activists, persuades Cameron and his brilliant young colleague Julian to investigate. One step at a time, they unearth a conspiracy by a foreign country to rescue its economy by destroying Britain’s Commonwealth – and its Establishment for good measure – using a network of traitors already embedded in key positions in Government.
After gunmen try to kill Cameron, Julian comes face to face with Jenna, a Russian professional killer with exotic tastes in after-hours fun, who has been hired by the plotters to carry out an assassination that will shake the world.
With background support from the Last Resort Squad, a group of elderly gents charged with protecting the country in times of extreme danger, Patrick and Julian have only a few days to infiltrate the conspirators, unmask the spy ring and prevent the assassination.
