"The body of a murdered, tortured Russian has been found in Moscow, which isn't unusual in the crime-ridden city. What is different is that this corpse is on the lawn of the British embassy. Eager to prevent an international incident, London dispatches veteran MI5 agent Charlie Muffin to investigate. Charlie is an old hand who recognizes that little has changed in the post-Solviet Union, most definitely not the espionage enmity among Russia, Britain, and America. The search for the identity of the murdered man enmeshes Charlie in wht might be the biggest attempted espionage coup of his career"--Page 2 of cover
The cloud collector by Brian Freemantle( Book )
6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 693 libraries worldwide
When Western intelligence services recognize a global jihadist attack has been mounted, the United States and the UK--its primary targets--lead the counter-offensive. Sally Hanning, a brilliant British MI5 agent whose parents were massacred in a terrorist ambush, is seconded to the CIA task force to hunt the Iranian mastermind through Al Qaeda's intricately coded use of social media and the Internet. Jack Irvine is NSA's guilt-burdened code-cracker--it was his diplomat-father's mistake that instigated the ambush in which Sally's parents died--who hacks his way into Iran's intelligence service. Attack after attack is foiled but the Al Qaeda mastermind eludes MI5 and the CIA every time. As they prepare to head off the final, ultimate attack, they realize, almost too late, that the plot is far more sinister than they had ever thought possible
CIA by Brian Freemantle( Book )
22 editions published between 1983 and 1986 in 3 languages and held by 686 libraries worldwide
Is the CIA a failure, a success, a muddle, or like other government agencies, all three? If the Post Office is inept, mail doesn't get delivered on time, but if the CIA fails, it could put America's national security in jeopardy. This uncensored book about a controversial subject provides some fascinating answers. Anybody who tries to form an opinion about the CIA from news stories is likely to be left with a buzz in his head, for the real CIA, as is demonstrated in this book, is an information-gathering organization that has performed some of its tasks far better--and some far worse--than we have imagined. And yet our very lives depend on how well the CIA does what it is supposed to do. Does the CIA foment revolution and civil unrest? Has it attempted to assassinate heads of state? Has it lied (yes), robbed (yes), and murdered (yes) in our best interests (yes and no). Here at last is hard and often fascinating information not about Smiley's people, who are fictional, but about William Casey's people, Stansfield Turner's people, George Bush's people, Allen Dulles's people, and all of it traces back, ultimately, to Wild Bill Donovan's wartime OSS, which helped win the war against the Nazis.--Adapted from dust jacket

Comrade Charlie by Brian Freemantle( Book )
19 editions published between 1989 and 2014 in English and held by 641 libraries worldwide
In this new addition to the highly acclaimed Charlie Muffin spy series, Brian Freemantle's scruffy hero becomes entangled in the high-stakes complexities of a KGB intelligence-gathering mission. As the Soviet Union is about to come apart, Moscow focuses its attention on one goal: not only to match but beat the American development of the Star Wars Defense Program and prove yet again that the Soviet Union is the leader in space exploration. Meanwhile, abrasive and unwelcome on his own side, Charlie is off the active British roster and relegated to the chores of a low-grade clerk. It's just such a chore that gets him back in action after he unwittingly stumbles onto a British traitor involved in the Kremlin's scheme. Moscow uses this coincidence to plan Charlie's permanent removal, using Natalia Fedova, Charlie's former lover and KGB debriefer, as the bait to bring about Charlie's destruction. Never has Freemantle plotted more skillfully than in this clever, historical spy thriller. Every character is real, every twist and turn of the plot a surprise, every detail of the sophisticated world of espionage credible and convincing

A cagey British spy fights enemies from without and withinCharlie Muffin is an anachronism. He came into the intelligence service in the early 1950s, when the government, desperate for foot soldiers in the impending Cold War, dipped into the middle class for the first time. Despite a lack of upper-class bearing, Charlie survived twenty-five years on the espionage battle & rsquo;s front line: Berlin. But times have changed: The boys from Oxford and Cambridge are running the shop again, and they want to get rid of the middle-class spy who & rsquo;s a thorn in their side. They have decided that it & rsquo;s time for Charlie to be sacrificed. But Charlie Muffin didn & rsquo;t survive two decades in Berlin by being a pushover. He intends to go on protecting the realm, and won & rsquo;t let anyone from his own organization get in his way. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Brian Freemantle including rare photos from the author & rsquo;s personal collection
