Lunchtime Spy Scoop!

Richmond Literary Lunches

DATE: Tuesday 26 October, 2021
LOCATION: Royal Mid-Surrey Golf Club, Richmond

The next lunch offers a fascinating insight into the murky world of espionage.

Come and meet Nigel West and Trevor Barnes, two of the leading experts in this field.

Nigel is an intelligence specialist and critically acclaimed author. Such is his depth of knowledge that The Sunday Times noted that, ‘His information is often so precise that many people believe he is the unofficial historian of the secret services’. His latest book, Spy Swap, is a study of Putin’s Intelligence Services, and includes a remarkable exposé of the level of incompetency of some of the Russian ‘sleepers’.

Trevor studied espionage and the early history of the CIA as a student at the University of Cambridge and was a Kennedy Scholar at Harvard. His book Dead Doubles is a highly readable account of a classic Cold War MI5 investigation.
