Spirit of Liberty


    George Carling's day job: Peer of the Realm. His former occupation: retired spy. He is the spymasters' spymaster; the man who knew all the secrets of the Cold War. But now the press are hinting that he might be the Fourth Man, or rather the Fifth Man, or was there even a Sixth Man? The newspapers think his modus operandi were too good to be honest. So, when SIS send young Timothy Matthews to talk with Carling, it emerges that Carling's real secrets are deeper and more astonishing. And when Matthews makes a trip to the USA to dig further, fears that old skeletons are about to be unearthed cause the authorities to take some drastic action to stop him talking to a retired CIA man. "The Spirit of Liberty" is the startling story of a spy who wanted to be a good man; a man who knows about Kim Philby's last great coup - the ultimate deception of the Cold War.
