For Shane Richard, without whose loving attentions this book would have been written in half the time.

Plan Aurora, hatched in a remote dacha in the forest outisde Moscow, led by Kim Philby, and initiated with relentless brilliance and skill, is a plan that in its madness - and spine-chilling ingenuity - breaches the top-secret Fourth Protocol and turns the fears that shaped it into a living nightmare.

A crack Soviet agent, placed under cover in a quiet English country town, begins to assemble a jigsaw of devastation. Working blind against the most urgent of deadlines, and against treachery and lethal power games in his own organisation, MI5 agent John Preston leads an operation to prevent the act of murderous devastation aimed and tumbling Britain into revolution.
