by Anton Foster
A gripping Cold War espionage thriller.

Written in a style reminiscent of John Le Carre this Cold War spy thriller slowly builds the tension as we follow the activities of American and British Secret Service agents in tracking down a missing nuclear scientist.

The Diplomat’s Tale is a story set in the early 1960s, when the Cold War was at its height and the world teetered on the brink of extinction.

A British nuclear scientist goes missing from the Atomic Weapons Research Establishment (AWRE) at Aldermaston. He carries with him the secrets of a new, terrible weapon.

Gradually MI5 personnel come to realise that there is more. Soviet moles and sleepers are activated, so is a snatch squad, as the KGB and the GRU also join the chase, triggering MI6 and the CIA into action and finally the SAS.

The story that takes the reader from sixties England to Franco’s Spain and involves intelligence services personnel from London, Moscow and Washington.
