A Mole in the Hand
Could there be a coup d’état in Britain??
It is 2014 and Britain is being torn apart by civil unrest as Trades Unions and protest groups join forces to fight austerity measures. The Coalition Government nears the end of its first term, and city centre riots force the imposition of special powers with nightly curfews.
Richard Mastin, a public relations expert, is visited by an American friend now a senior CIA Officer. He issues Mastin with a challenge, and within days he uncovers a plot for a British coup. Mastin is pitted against ex-KGB officers, preparing to unleash hundreds of moles, under cover for decades.
Mastin discovers MPs, senior civil servants, and police officers - who were recruited during the Soviet Era.
Mastin’s life and family are threatened. He enlists help from old British friends and new American friends. Key recruit is beautiful TV Producer Juliana Weston.
He crosses the Atlantic to fight the planned coup. In a dramatic ending he flees to rural Tuscany with all of the computer files without which the coup cannot be launched.
