As you might expect from a story originally published in "Tales of Tinfoil: Stories of Paranoia and Conspiracy," this one is all about convenient accidents, shadowy figures, and Unseen Hands. It's also well-researched historical fiction, with a backdrop of well-known political figures and geopolitical fiascos that I, for one, can tell you rings true with what I remember first-hand. The writing, as you'd expect coming from Bunker, is good enough that the boundary between "historical" and "fiction" is totally seamless, making the whole account believable to the point of being eerie. Highly recommended to anyone, conspiracy theorist or not, who likes their great fiction in (comparatively) small doses.
I loved how the author used Matthew's story as the center around which this tale takes place, giving the reader a window into what it's like to witness these events. It's a tight point of view that demonstrates strong character work as his youth becomes tarnished, slowly being affected by the stench of corruption all around him. This, combined with admirable research into the time period, makes for a satisfying and gripping tale.
I originally read this short story when it was published in Tales of Tinfoil: Stories of Paranoia and Conspiracy, an anthology filled with much more excellent short stories about conspiracy and paranoia just like this one!

I've listened to several of Bunker's stories now and been pleased with all of them.
