Allbeury was a Lieutenant-Colonel in the Army Intelligence Corps. After the war he worked in sales, advertising and radio before publishing his first novel.From Booklist:
George Carling, now Lord Carling, was one of the top British SIS agents during the cold war. Now ostensibly retired, he spends his time promoting arts and culture. But now a tabloid newspaper is threatening to expose dark secrets about Carling--something to do with his association with renowned traitor Kim Philby--and the SIS wants to know the truth. So agent Tim Mathews is sent to visit Carling and hear his version. As Tim probes into Carling's days as a top British agent, he learns that the man was not only a gifted spy but also a good human being with principles that eventually cost him his personal happiness. Allbeury offers an unusual espionage thriller, more driven by emotion than action, with a hero whose human frailty may be his most endearing characteristic and a conclusion as unsettling as it is surprising. Fine work from one of the genre's most reliable warhorses. Emily Melton
