About this product
- DescriptionSpying has changed. In this era of email intercepts and drone strikes, spooks are expected to uncover plots buried in mountains of data. Yet this makes the need for trained field operatives who can verify facts and uncover secrets more acute than ever. The human factor endures. InaThe New Spymasters, the first real account of how modern espionage works, we follow riveting stories of dramatic missions and the larger-than-life characters who undertook them. These were moments when success - and ultimately life or death - depended on whether the right person was in the right place . . . at exactly the right time. Number One Bestseller -aEvening Standard Book of the Year - Daily Telegraph 'Exceptional. A blueprint for productive, sophisticated espionage in the age of Islamist terror.'aDaily Telegraph 'Draws on an impressive array of interviews with serving intelligence officers. A page-turner for those outside the secret world, and a thought-provoker for those inside it.' The Times 'Valuable and thought-provoking, breaks new ground. A good manual for the spy cadets of the future, the dangers they face and traps they may well fall into.' Guardian 'Perceptive, rigorous, full of revelations . . . (and) very enjoyable.' Jason Burke, author ofaAl-Qaeda
