In November 1988, Hugh John Simmonds CBE, Margaret Thatcher’s favorite speechwriter and the author’s best friend, boss, and political mentor, turned up dead in a woodland glade, a few miles from their sleepy, suburban hometown 20 miles west of London. To learn why his best friend was murdered, Geoffrey Gilson journeyed into the dangerous world of international arms deals, covert intelligence operations, and high-level political corruption and discovered a secret that explains much of contemporary history. A quest for truth which, after 10 years of high-risk adventure coupled with painstaking research and firsthand interviews, uncovered the ugly truth that, for some 30 years, the various governments of Great Britain have loaned their country’s military and intelligence services to the United States, allowing presidents from Reagan to Obama to pursue their covert foreign and military policies without the encumbrance of congressional oversight.
