5.0 out of 5 stars A riveting read, 22 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Spycatcher (Mass Market Paperback)
I had been meaning to read this book for years but have only just got around to it. I found the book intensely interesting and at times, when Wright is describing specific intelligence operations, quite exciting. Peter Wright it must be said is a driven man and it certainly shows in this book. Frederick Forsyth said that Wright was paranoid and bitter, apparently he only wrote the book because he was angry about his pension arrangements.

But whatever his motives may have been Wright has written a fascinating account of secret service life. The account of his meeting in Washington with J. Edgar Hoover is really gripping, Hoover hated the Brits apparently. Also intriguing is the way in which a large section of MI5 was only too happy to conspire against the Labour government of the time, proving that Harold Wilson was not being paranoid himself when he spoke of dark plots against him.

If you are in the least bit interested in the history of the British secret services then this book is surely a must-read.
