New York, U.S.A.: Dell Pub Co, 1988. Good/No Jacket as Issued. Prologue FOR YEARS I HAD WONDERED WHAT THE LAST DAY WOULD BE LIKE. 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.
