About the Author: Angus Ross, a.k.a. Kenneth Giggal, was born on the 19th March 1927, at Dewsbury in West Yorkshire. On leaving school, he couldn't wait to get into the Royal Navy and volunteered for the Fleet Air Arm in 1944. After serving in aircraft carriers and on stations abroad, he left the service in 1951 with one ambition: to work in newspapers or magazines.
He joined a firm of Scottish Publishers and worked from their offices in Scotland and Manchester before spending a final ten years in Fleet Street. He retired to his home in North Yorkshire in 1970, in order to write free-lance

About this book: The very last person former agent Marcus Farrow expected to find on his doorstep late that Saturday night was Francis X. Toomey. But there stood his old CIA adversary, as large and ugly as life, cold and wet and demanding a drink. And when the phone rang minutes later, Farrow knew that the 'retirement' he had enjoyed since that business in Luxembourg was about to come to an abrupt end. The Cousins, it seemed, were in big trouble. So Farrow found himself reunited with his old boss Charlie in a race against time to plug a deadly leak. Before they're through, they encounter a couple of corpses, a sinister band of thugs going under the name of Britain for the British - and Farrow narrowly misses a premature meeting with his Maker...
