Publisher Description

Arthur Ffoulkes, semi-retired CIA agent gathering dust in London, gets a phone call. One of his old agents, a fierce old Hungarian émigré known as the Brigadier, rendered obsolete by the new methods and technologies of espionage, was shot dead in Lloyd’s Park in Croydon.

The CIA and MI-Group bring in Ffoulkes with one purpose ⸺ make it all go away. But the more he investigates, the more he determines that the Brigadier wasn’t the victim of a random crime or an angry husband, but was shot by a KGB hit team.

And that he was trying to bring to Ffoulkes evidence of... something. A proof, but of what?

As Ffoulkes interviews other partisans in the émigré underground, members of the intelligence community who knew the one-time leader of a half-dozen other anti-Communist groups, even the legendary Deborah Rusan, MI-6’s in-house Russian expert, it becomes clear to him that the Brigadier had come into possession of knowledge that the head of a powerful KGB department was going to disappear himself, with millions of dollars in ill-gotten gains.

It's a race against time for Ffoulkes to put together the fragments of a dead man's life and bring to justice the Chief of Remote Surveillance Department ⸺ codenamed Capuchin ⸺ before he vanishes for good.

Trigger warnings:
- use of some terms which today are considered offensive, but for the period in which this work is set were not intended as such.

- some thoughts concerning suicide and death.

- although no one dies on the page, there are some descriptions of the appearances of deceased people which may be upsetting.
