In June 2013, The Guardian and The Washington Post started publishing articles based on documents taken from the National Security Agency by Edward Snowden. It's the most significant spy story of this century, and perhaps of the last - but for all the revelations regarding the NSA's surveillance over-reach, could the reporting also have harmed legitimate intelligence activities of the US and its allies? How responsible has the reporting on Snowden been?

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
