Nigel West: Spies, Lies & Chocolate
This special video edition of Litopia After Dark features acclaimed espionage writer and expert, Nigel West. “His information is so precise” writes The Sunday Times “that many people believe he is the unofficial historian of the secret services.”
Nigel’s controversial books invariably hit the headlines. His greatest coup was tracking down the wartime double agent GARBO, who was reported to have died in Africa in 1949. In fact, Nigel traced him to Venezuela, and they then collaborated on the bestseller GARBO.
Topics covered include the Profumo affair, the bizarre death of MI6 employee Gareth Williams, the KGB and the GRU, the Maastricht treaty, UKIP, Venona, JBS Haldane, Robert Maxwell and “Have I Got News For You”.
Nigel was awarded the US Association of Former Intelligence Officers’ first Lifetime Literature Achievement Award, and you can find more information on all his titles at his website, nigelwest.com.
