  • « Au cours de mon existence, j'ai échappé de justesse à la fureur d'un trafiquant d'armes de Hambourg, j'ai été mitraillé par un Mig pendant la guerre civile au Nigeria, et j'ai atterri en Guinée-Bissau au beau milieu d'un sanglant coup d'état. La Stasi m'a arrêté, les Israéliens m'ont chouchouté, l'IRA m'a réexpédié en catastrophe d'Irlande en Angleterre, et une certaine Tchèque tout à fait charmante, agent de la police secrète... bref, ce qu'elle m'a fait était plus intime. Et tout cela n'était que prémices et amuse-gueules. Ces divers événements furent vécus de l'intérieur. Mais aussi, et toujours, de l'extérieur. En outsider. » Avant de devenir le maître du roman d'espionnage que l'on sait (Chacal, Les chiens de guerre, Le 4e Protocole...), Frederick Forsyth fut le plus jeune pilote de la Royal Air Force, puis l'un des meilleurs grands reporters de sa génération. Il revient dans cette autobiographie sur son parcours exceptionnel, une vie d'aventures passionnantes qui ont inspiré nombre de ses best-sellers.

    It is 1999 and Russia is on the edge of total implosion. Social and moral order has collapsed and what small semblance of control there is, is being imposed by mafialike criminal gangs. While public opinion in the West is largely indifferent, the political analysts are less sanguine Russian meltdown will make the disintegration of the Balkans look like the collapse of a cupcake. Out of the chaos, however, a single charismatic voice is starting to be heard that of Igor Komarov, a visionary patriot who claims he can restore Russia's greatness and bring prosperity to the masses. He even woos Western political leaders with a rather more realistic analysis of the way forward for Russia. Komarov is set to win the next election when a document is smuggled into the British Embassy in Moscow. It's called The Black Manifesto and it appears to show Komarov's secret agenda his political blueprint is really Mein Kampf, the rebirth of Russia will be as a New Third Reich with Komarov as Fuhrer. But can the document be authenticated? And what can the Western Alliance's most secret Trilateral Commission do about it if it is? They need to find another voice the masses will listen to and obey rather than Komarov an icon they can cleave to and trust. Once, not that long ago, he was called the Tsar.

    And so develops a thrilling and increasingly frightening adventure Jason Monk, exCIA, who used to run agents into the Soviet Union, is recruited and slips back into Russia, into the desperate oscow world of poverty, luxury, gangsters and prostitutes and underneath it all, the titanic power struggle to ensure the outcome of the forthcoming elections.

  • Sam McCready is The Deceiver, one of the Secret Intelligence Service's most unorthodox and most valued operatives, a legend in his own time.

    As part of the proceedings, four of Sam's key operations are reviewed: a clandestine mission into East Germany in 1985 to contact the top Russian spy General Pankratin; the second involving a KGB colonel who wants to defect - but is he genuine? An audacious Qaddafi-inspired plot to ship arms to the IRA; and the fourth when McCready presided over the aftermath of political murder and mayhem in the Caribbean.
