I, Said The Spy - Derek LambertLondon: Arlington Books, 1980, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dustwrapper. Dustwrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges.
From the cover: “Every year one hundred or so of the wealthiest and most influential members of the Western Establishment meet at a secret conference called Bilderberg, and it is around this little-known fact that best-selling author Derek Lambert has woven a spectacular novel of adventure, intrigue and romance.
Among the heads of state, bankers and captains of industry who meet in an historic chateau near Paris are Claire Jerome, a glamorous millionairess just sighting loneliness from the foothills of middle-age; Pierre Brossard, a French industrialist whose wealth matches his mean-ness; and Paul Kingdon, British investment whizz-kid of the seventies, who has conducted a life-long love affair with diamonds.
But despite their apparent impregnability, each of the Bilderbergers is vulnerable — especially when they meet in force under one roof. And it is this vulnerability that is exploited in a masterly conspiracy that spurns the heavy-handed hi-jack methods of today’s terrorists.
But that isn’t the only threat to the Bilderbergers, who have grown to confuse position with infallibility. A crazed assassin is on the loose… A journalist dedicated to unmasking the truth behind the conference has infiltrated their midst… Espionage agents from Moscow, Washington and London have penetrated their defences…
I, Said The Spy is a novel on the grand scale, and the intrigues and love stories finally explode in a stunning climax. But what elevates the book above its contemporaries is the factual but hitherto little-known background. Not only will it stun the uninitiated reader, but it will also stagger the men and women behind the seats of power in the Western world today — the Bilderbergers themselves.”
