9780283988479: Their Trade Is Treachery

WHEN THEIR TRADE IS TREACHERY WAS FIRST PUBLISHED IN MARCH 1981, IT IMMEDIATELY BECAME A SENSATIONAL NUMBER ONE BEST-SELLER, MAKING HEADLINES AROUND THE WORLD WITH ITS INSIDE STORY OF TREACHERY AND COVER-UP IN HIGH PLACES. CHAPMAN PINCHER'S REVELATION THAT A FORMER HEAD OF M15, SIR ROGER HOLLIS, HAD BEEN SUSPECTED BY HIS COLLEAGUES OF BEING A SOVIET SPY AND TWICE SUBJECTED TO OFFICIAL INVESTIGATION, WAS CONFIRMED BY MARGARET THATCHER FROM THE DISPATCH BOX OF THE HOUSE OF COMMONS. IN THIS NEW EDITION OF THE BOOK, CHAPMAN PINCHER HAS ADDED MUCH FASCINATING NEW MATERIAL THAT HAS COME TO LIGHT AS A RESULT OF HIS REVELATIONS. HE NOW NAMES SEVERAL IMPORTANT FIGURES WHO HAD PERFORCE TO REMAIN UNIDENTIFIED IN THE FIRST EDITION. HE ALSO DESCRIBES THE TWO ENQUIRIES ORDERED BY THE PRIME MINISTER-THE FIRST INTO THE BRITISH SECURITY SERVICES, AND THE SECOND INTO HOW HE OBTAINED HIS INFORMATION. PUBLICITY SURROUNDING THE REVELATION ABOUT SIR ROGER HOLLIS HAS PERHAPS OBSCURED THE TRULY SENSATIONAL NATURE OF THIS BOOK, FOR CHAPMAN PINCHER HAS SECURED THE MOST AUTHENTIC, FIRST-HAND ACCOUTNS OF THE WORKINGS OF ESPIONAGE AND COUNTER-ESPIONAGE EVER PUBLISHED. NO WRITER HAS EVER BEFORE PENETRATED SO DEEPLY AND AUTHORITATIVELY INTO THIS WORLD.
