First there was Peter Wright - now the spectre of another tell-all British Intelligence officer haunts the government.
Greville Sixsmith, a once powerful intelligence executive, retires to Melbourne to write his memoirs, memoirs so potentially explosive that his flat is watched night and day by members of the Australian and British Secret Services. . and by members of the Provisional IRA who have been tipped off that the memoirs contain the identity of a British mole at the top of their organisation.
Little do they realise that the British have installed Sixsmith in order to feed them false information. That is until they break into his flat and torture the truth from Sixsmith himself. The one surviving IRA man sets off across Australia in order to tell his controller that the memoirs are a hoax. Hard on his heels are two Intelligence officers who will do anything to stop him. . .
