More About the Author
Annie Machon worked as an intelligence officer for the UK domestic Security Service, MI5, where she was responsible for investigating political and terrorist targets before resigning to help her former partner, David Shayler, blow the whistle on the crimes, incompetence and lack of accountability of the spies.
As a result, they had to go on the run around Europe, live in exile for three years and survive two high profile court cases.
Annie has gained a rare perspective both on the inner workings of governments, intelligence agencies and the media. Drawing on her varied experiences, she is now a writer, international public speaker, media commentator and political campaigner.
