The Money That Money Can't Buy
First published in 1967 under James Mitchell's pen-name James Munro.
A new assignment for John Craig the special agent who rocketed his creator to international fame,
Simmons owned newspapers and Brodski owned a strip club. What they had in common was money and a hatred for the Russians. They, and others, used their money to express that hate - and they accepted help from wherever they could get it - - including Red China. And the Russians didn't like that.
The situation was explosive. At any moment, Simmons and Brodski and their sympathisers could precipitate a holocaust, making the cold war hot. So they had to be stopped.
It was a job for Department K - that special branch of British Intelligence which handled assignments too dangerous and too dirty for anyone else. And Department K elected an expert - John Craig - to be judge, jury and executioner.
