For weeks detectives kept telling me about Patricia Butler. I was writing a book about a Black Panther conspiracy trial, and a lot of detectives I knew came into a restaurant called Mario's across the street from the courthouse. They ate and sat around the bar and talked about the trial, and then sooner or later one of them, usually Frank Batten, was sure to turn to me and say for the hundredth time, "You know, you really ought to do a story about Patty Butler." · Batten was a nervous man, serious and intense. A sergeant who had ridden with him in a radio car when they got out of the police academy said everyone in the precinct wanted to work with him because he'd never take anything. If any grateful citizen started handing out cigars or whiskey, Batten took nothing. It all went to the partner. At Mario's, Batten was a loner. Not from his own choice. The other detectives were too cautious to get friendly with him. They talked to him and drank with him, but if they wanted to gossip or discuss their cases they were careful to do it somewhere else. Batten had been in the Internal Affairs Division (IAD), and though his present assignment was the Narcotics Bureau, no one was that sure that he wasn't still in the IAD.

His heavily lined, beard-stubbled face was flushed, and a look of pure contempt emanated from his blue eyes when he spotted Yngve atthe radio console. "You stupid Norwegian bastard!" he cursed as he lifted up the barrel of his Uzi, adding with finality, "Auf Wiedersehen, Viking." Yngve knew that his luck had run out. His final thoughts before the Uzi's bullets ripped into his body were of his beloved bride and the baby that he'd never live to see.

In January 1976 after two decades in the top echelons of the British Security Service, M15, it was time to rejoin the real world. I emerged for the final time from Euston Road tube station. The winter sun shone brightly as I made my way down Gower Street toward Trafalgar Square. Fifty yards on I turned into the unmarked entrance to an anonymous office block. Tucked be­tween an art college and a hospital stood the unlikely headquar­ters of British Counterespionage. I showed my pass to the policeman standing discreetly in the reception alcove and took one of the specially programmed lifts which carry senior officers to the sixth-floor inner sanctum. I walked silently down the corridor to my room next to the Direc­tor-General's suite. The offices were quiet. Far below I could hear the rumble of tube trains carrying commuters to the West End. I unlocked my door. In front of me stood the essential tools of the intelligence officer's trade-a desk, two telephones, one scrambled for outside calls, and to one side a large green metal safe with an oversized combination lock on the front. I hung up my coat and began mechanically to arrange my affairs. Having seen too many retired officers at cocktail parties loitering for scraps of news and gossip, I wanted to make a clean break. I was determined to make a new life for myself breeding horses out in Australia. I turned the dials on the locks and swung open the heavy safe door. In front was a mass of Registry files stamped Top Secret, and behind them a neat stack of small combination boxes. Files: over the years I had drawn thousands. Now these were the last. Routine agent reports circulated routinely to me, the latest re­ports of the Computer Working Party, the latest analyses of Pro­visional IRA strength. Files always need answers. I had none to give. The Russian Diplomat's file had been sent to me by a younger officer. Did I recognize him? Not really. It was a double­agent case which had been running off and on for years. Did I have any ideas? Not really. When you join the Service each case looks different. When you leave they all seem the same. I care­fully initialed off the files and arranged for my secretary to take them to the Registry. After lunch I set to work on the combination boxes, pulling them out from the back of the safe one by one. The first con­tained technical details of microphones and radio receivers-rem­nants of my time in the 1950s as MI5's first scientific officer. I arranged for the contents to be sent over to the Technical De­partment. An hour later the head of the Department came over to thank me. He was very much the modem government scien­tist: neat, cautious, and constantly in search of money. "They were just odd things I kept," I said. "I don't suppose you'll have much use for them. It'~ all satellites now, isn't it?" "Oh no," he replied. "I'll enjoy reading them." He looked a little embarrassed. He and I had never really got on. We came from different worlds. I was a glue, sticks, and rubber-band impro­viser from the war; he was a defense contractor. We shook hands and I went back to sorting out my safe. The remaining boxes held papers gathered after I joined the Counterespionage Department in 1964, when the search for spies in British Intelligence was at its most intense. The handwritten notes and typed aides-memoire were packed with the universal currency of spying-lists of suspects and details of accusations, betrayals, and verdicts. Here, in the endless paper chase which began so clearly but ended in mystery, lay the threads of my career. Eventually my secretary came in and handed me two blue books. "Your diaries," she said, and together we shredded them lnto the burn bag beside my desk until it was time for the final ritual.

JOHN LE CARRE ONCE WROTE THAT THE BRITISH SECRET SERVICES have an image but no face. It is an image which has been cultivated since they were founded in the first decade of twentieth century. The CIA may have greater resources, the KGB greater machinations, Mossad the greater ruthlessness, but MI5 and MI6 were the first players in Kipling's Great Game; They are its master craftsmen. They invented the principles of tradecraft, broke the first codes, ran the best agents, bred the best spymasters, and taught the rest everything they know. Above all, they keep the secrets. In the intelligence world MI5 and MI6 are still primes inter pares. Britain has always carefully protected the reputation of its Secret Services. They are seen as embodying her most admirable national qualities-subtlety of mind, pragmatism, and an ironic detachment from the naivetes which disfigure other nations. The that Britain's prestige in the real world has declined in recent decades, the greater the importance which has been attached to them. It is almost as if clandestine expertise compensates for the loss of Empire and all the increasing irrelevance of much of British life today. The spy world remains the last arena where wellborn Englishmen can still exercise that effortless superiority which for centuries they were born to believe was theirs by right.
