Peter Taylor:
Operation Chiffon

Operation Chiffon is a revelation, and a wonderfully well-written account of extraordinary events. On its 25th anniversary, it tells how the Good Friday Agreement began to be possible as MI5 and MI6 worked for a ceasefire with the IRA. Details of the intelligence operation that helped bring peace to Ireland are uncovered for the first time in this gripping narrative after being kept secret for forty years. The legendary BBC journalist, Peter Taylor, had unique access to the officers involved and he relates how they risked their lives to help secure the fragile peace. ‘An extraordinary story…A true tale of espionage.’ wrote The Times.
