Description
Former MI6 officer Harry Ferguson offers this gripping nonfiction thriller set in the early days of Britain's intelligence services, uncovering a daring rescue attempt during the Russian Revolution and a "mission impossible" against the best defended naval target in Russia. Paul Dukes, a 30-year-old concert pianist, a master of disguise, and the only English spy in Russia, was cut off in Petrograd after infiltrating the Bolshevik government and stealing top-secret information. In what seemed a suicide mission, naval lieutenant Gus Agar and his team of seven men boarded plywood patrol boats and set out for the island fortress of Kronstadt to bring Dukes and his vital intelligence home. Ferguson profiles both Dukes (the only MI6 officer to be knighted for work in the field) and Agar, whose extraordinary escapade won him the Victoria Cross.

"A tale of adventure, honor, and raw courage quite as exciting as anything found in fiction."Daily Mail (London)
