Sex, drugs and a deadly toll . . .

Designer drugs are nothing new in the Sixties, but when a new tranquillizer proves to be dangerously addictive and a risk to national security, then it falls to Colonel Russell to investigate.

As his Security Executive follows the drug trail from the black market to the Houses of Parliament, Russell uncovers a ruthless enemy determined to use any means - political and violent - to protect its market.

It will take all Russell's experience to navigate the corridors of power and break the drug's hold on the country.

The Unquiet Sleep is the fourth novel in William Haggard's Colonel Russell series of hugely acclaimed Cold War thrillers - now available in digital version for the first time.

For fans of Ian Fleming, John le Carre, Charles Cumming and Frederick Forsyth.
