In this short but blistering ebook, author Jeremy Duns (Dead Drop: The True Story of Oleg Penkovsky and the Cold War's Most Dangerous Operation) puts the media coverage of the Snowden affair under the microscope, and reveals a catalogue of inaccuracies, sensationalism and reckless disregard for the principle of reporting in the public interest.
Praise for Dead Drop:
'This excellent book contains lessons that are still valid in the 21st century' - Oleg Gordievsky, Literary Review
'The career of Oleg Penkovsky reads like a story by John le Carré... Duns' denouement is both startling and convincing - a fitting climax to this irresistible real-life thriller' - Francis Wheen, Mail on Sunday
'Fantastic research and digging... a great read' - Gordon Corera, author of MI6: Life and Death in the British Secret Service
