The war had ended; it was 1946. A restless British Press remembered a
story "spiked" by Security two years earlier. Now they began to ask questions - What
had happened to the secret prisoner in the Tower of London? And then who was the
Dutch officer who had betrayed 'Arnhem? Until then most people had believed the
slaughter at Arnhem to have been a hazard of war - a coincidence that German Panzers
should have been where the drop was planned. But one man hadn't believed it
- Lt. Col. Oreste Pinto, Dutch intelligence officer and spycatcher extraordinary.
This is his story, the story of the capture of the greatest traitor of the war . . .
more, it is the story of the Spycatcher himself.
Oreste Pinto, a lean, kindly Dutchman and an excellent story-teller,
began his Secret Service career with the Deuxieme Bureau, the French
equivalent of M.I.5, and at the outbreak of war was engaged in counter-intelligence
work for Britain.
