DESCRIPTION: Once, it was extremely rare for any book to be published 
about British Special Forces or British Intelligence Services. That 
has changed in recent years and several individuals have written 
about their careers in this dark grey area. This is one of those 
books – Highly Recommended.

For those who have no direct experience of either Special Forces or 
Intelligence Services it is very difficult to know how true any of 
these biographies are. Even experience in these areas does not 
provide all the knowledge because of the compartmentalisation of 
these services. In a way it doesn't really matter that much because, 
as with this book, its a cracking read with as much excitement as 
any spy novel. It is a cocktail of humour, chaos, success, sadness, 
betrayal.

Even with the rather loose vetting that has appeared in recent 
years, it is highly unlikely that any of the content in the book 
was formally reviewed by ModSy, or any other British Government 
Agency, and approved for publication. The reader must take a 
personal view of whether this book provides detailed and accurate 
information from a dark grey world, or is an entertaining collection 
of unverified assertions and anecdotes.

Captain P.J. 'Red' Riley is an ex-SAS soldier who served for 
eighteen years as an MI6/SIS agent. He has written of his 
involvement in operations in South America during Op Corporate, the 
Falklands War, and in Africa and the Middle East. All areas where 
the SAS and MI6 have been very active, with snippets of information 
becoming public, mainly because of chance or an error by an 
individual. In 2015 the author was arrested for murder but all 
charges were later dropped. Reading through the autobiography a 
picture is painted of someone who has served his country in areas 
that few like to talk about, or even acknowledge, but has been 
treated poorly by his country. He has included information about 
what Phony Blair knew about Iraqi WMDs and about questions of the 
British Government's alleged involvement in the death of Princess 
Diana.

This is a truly absorbing book. Readers may be interested to know 
that the intelligence community were convinced that Dr David Kelly 
was killed because he embarrassed the Blair Regime by doing his job 
and briefing the media on what was known about Iraqi WMDs. There 
were many views about who actually carried out the assassination 
and how they did it. There were also those who thought it was a 
deliberate instruction issued by Blair or someone very close to him, 
but others believed it was a Henry II moment when some Labour time-
server overheard the “who will rid me of this turbulent priest” and 
took it as a direct instruction to hire an assassin. The way in 
which David Kelley's family were threatened and bullied by the 
Blair Regime have certain relationships to the author's experiences. 
We may never know but its great read.
