3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, but is it true?, 20 Aug 2012
This review is from: The Big Breach: From Top Secret to Maximum Security (Paperback)
The first half is full of titillating (although by now surely out-of date)detail about the inner-workings of MI6. The second half is Tomlinson's justification for this gratuitous spilling of the beans, which is that in spite of being quite literally the best recruit they'd ever had, MI6 personnel decided to sack him for unknown but certainly trumped-up reasons. His account of how he was persecuted by MI6 merely for wanting to have his dismissal looked at by an employment tribunal is a drawn-out martyrdom. His only way of hitting back is to write a best-selling book.

Is it true? That is anyone's guess, but anyone who can write as well as this is capable of fabrication, and to me his story of consummate hero to utter zero looks too good (or bad) to be true. The self-justification becomes tiresome. There is obviously more to this than meets the eye; those who could enlighten us cannot.
