United Kingdom – Very, very little is known about the CIA. And that’s the whole point.

However, in a compelling new novel from British writer, Anthony James, the CIA (or, as it’s known in the book, ‘The Company’) is picked to pieces and explored like never before. Fact straddles fiction as ‘The Accidental Spy’ cons everyone except its readers.


Secretive, cynical, scary, even silly. A fresh look at the secret society of the CIA aka ‘The Company’.

Loyalists, lunatics and losers interact in a series of mismanaged and doubtful pursuits in the apparent defence of ‘Uncle Sam’. The loner, Accidental Spy wanders into this lurid and administrative nightmare and walks away with invaluable secrets.

Sometimes funny, sometimes frightening and sometimes shambolic our accidental spy staggers through a variety of trials, some of his own making.

Who’s conning who, what’s the secret? Does any of it really matter? With ‘The Accidental Spy,’ you decide.

“I want to show how ordinary citizens make up the international spy community,” explains James, who has written a string of other hugely-popular thrillers. “From the lazy guy next door to the murderer and the fanatically-intelligent – anyone and everyone is potentially a mule on the part of the Government.”

Continuing, “We also explore to what extent state-sponsored agencies have both the capacity and wiliness to commit murder – and how this fictional twist to the story could indeed cross over to the real world. Corruption is everywhere and can’t be avoided; this book aims to try and make some sense of it all.”

With the volume’s demand expected to increase, interested readers are urged to secure their copies without delay.

About the Author:

Anthony James has had a fabulous career, having travelled the world as few have been privileged to do.  He was born in Wales where he has latterly returned to enjoy the land of his fathers, the hiraeth of the damp valleys and the choruses of Rugby days.

He describes himself as a distinguished drunk which is probably a bit unfair, some would say an enthusiastic ‘bon viveur’ would be more accurate.  He is married to the lovely Dawn who incidentally is one of the world’s best text editors.  The years stubbornly move on but at a spritely 76 Anthony still plays a smooth round of golf and if called upon deliver an engaging after dinner speech.

Apart from writing which he does in several media, blogs, travel and novels etc., he dabbles in acrylic painting and is still a keen wine buff and cook.

He belongs to the Christian tradition but is not a believer in the orthodox sense, he is a wavering middle ground liberal conservative with socialist overtones.  Namely crackers!

Anthony’s core ability is to enjoy himself.
