"Lie low, wait, do nothing until you hear from us. First you must establish yourself ..."

Since these words, nearly thirty years ago, James Fenn - hero of the 1956 Hungarian uprising, one-time Fleet Street journalist and KGB 'sleeper' agent - has been waiting to be called. From his Mediterranean island home, with his wife and his children, he has nearly forgotten his soviet masters.

Meanwhile, a world away in London, British security services are investigating one of the Prime Minister's closest advisers - a man suspected by the CIA of passing secrets to the Russians.

Fenn's time has finally come. They must wake the sleeper.

Eric Clark's The Sleeper is a spy novel as authentic and as chilling as anything by John Le Carre and Len Deighton.

Praise for Eric Clark...

Eric Clark is an investigative journalist: according to then Home Secretary, Roy Jenkins, his Observer disclosures about gambling led to the decision to change Britain's gaming laws. He has also written four successful thrillers, among them Black Gambit and Chinese Burn.
