Publisher's Summary

Catesby is a spy with an antiestablishment chip on his shoulder. Loathed by the Americans and trusted by the Russians, he is sent to Havana and Washington to make clandestine contacts. London has authorised Catesby to offer Moscow a secret deal to break the Cuban Missile Crisis deadlock. But then Catesby meets the Midnight Swimmer, who has a chilling message for Washington....

Merging fact and fiction, sleaze and high politics, this white-knuckle thriller sees a superpower standoff played out against a backdrop of honey-trap blackmail, Mafia contracts, assassination and Vatican scandal.

Tale of historical suspense

More than a spy thriller. An account of one man’s moral conflict during a Cold War crisis. Well crafted with multiple twists, interesting characters and authentic dialogue. Reading is exquisite. Wilson brings history to life and fright to hyper front door. Bravo!
