South Atlantic Requiem

South Atlantic Requiem

Author: Edward Wilson Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 23/05/2019

It is 1982 and the British prime minister and the Argentine president are both clinging to power. Downing Street, having ignored alarm bells coming from the South Atlantic, finds itself in a full-blown crisis when Argentina invades the remote and forgotten British territory of the Falklands Islands. Catesby is dispatched urgently to prevent Argentina from obtaining more lethal Exocet missiles by fair means or foul. From Patagonia to Paris, from Chevening to the White House, Catesby plays a deadly game of diplomatic cat and mouse determined to avert the loss of life. The clock is ticking as diplomats and statesmen race for a last-minute settlement while the weapons of war are primed and aimed. Edward Wilson's stunning new spy thriller brilliantly evokes the intricate world of high-stakes espionage with a rare authenticity and deeply-felt sympathy for the human cost and tragedy of conflict.

Catesby takes over the South America Desk at MI6, only to discover that disaster in the South Atlantic is looming. Downing Street is slashing defence spending, but refusing to negotiate a Falklands deal. With hostilities imminent, Catesby's job is to prevent the Argentine Junta from obtaining more Exocet missiles. Catesby is summoned and given a secret and highly sensitive task by the Foreign Secretary. He is sent to Peru via Washington to help negotiate a last minute peace deal. Catesby knows that the peace deal involves Faustian pacts. The right-wingers in Reagan's White House want the repressive Junta to survive - and many in London would prefer Thatcher not to survive. But Catesby and the Foreign Secretary have an unspoken bond. Both men have experienced the horror of war and want to spare others. In the early hours of 2 May, the Junta agrees new peace terms. Twelve hours later the Belgrano is torpedoed and sunk. Catesby is left in a state of shock and disillusionment and it is up to him to uncover the truth...
