(A book in the Steve Carradine series)
A novel by


A thrilling espionage novel that exposes the secret lives of spies.

Steve Carradine is enjoying a well-earned break, diving in the small Spanish town of Tamariu when someone makes an attempt on his life.

On the Spanish coast he meets the mysterious Francesca Romano, who disappears without a trace.

As Carradine begins to investigate her whereabouts, he is called back to London on an urgent mission - to find and recover Professor Ubyeknov, the defecting Russian scientist, from deep within Soviet territory.

Aided by Romano, who turns out to be a French agent, he attempts a daring rescue.

The three fugitives are thwarted at every turn as it becomes harder to distinguish friend from foe.

The tendrils of the Soviet secret service extend deeper into Europe than Carradine could ever have imagined.

The Secret Enemy is an action-packed thriller and a political drama filled with the intrigue of international intelligence services.

The Secret Enemy is a fantastic sequel to Blueprint For Destruction - gripping, thrilling, and brilliantly written, Glasby's writing will leave you breathless and desperate for the next instalment.

John Glasby has written as many as a hundred other books under a wide variety of pseudonyms and his books are highly compelling. The Secret Enemy is the third instalment in the six-book series and was originally published under the pen name Manning K Robertson.
