Summary

A spookily prescient espionage thriller from one of the masters of the genre, first published in 1980.

What if the Soviet Union gained control over the US presidency? SIS agent James Mackay fears that this may already be happening when he realises the newly elected president's press secretary is a former Communist radical with links to the KGB.

When the witnesses who support his suspicions are systematically eliminated, MacKay must race against time to prove that the president-elect is not his own man before Inauguration Day and avoid a national catastrophe.

"When I say Ted Allbeury knows where the bodies are buried I mean it literally." (Len Deighton, author of The Ipcress File)

A good story.

A good story - quite convincing.
What sold me wasMichael Fenner’s narration which I consider superb. His vocal prowess brought the story to life and I would recommend this audiobook.
