Product description

About the Author

Peter Paget was born in London just after the end of the Second World War, a baby boomer, he grew up in London and the West Country where his intelligence was noted at an early age when he advised The Cabinet Office Chief Scientific Advisor at the age of just seventeen years old, by donating free of patent or royalty a technological technique to HMG. This was later bought and taken up by BP Oil and distributed World Wide. Peter was co-opted into the British Intelligence Community shortly after this and has worked undercover on various tasks and assignments for the past fifty years, while also leading a double life as author, lecturer, therapist and international adventurer. Peter has been both a researcher and programme contributor to the BBC, ghost written books for Granada, made educational programmes for students and the British Army Schools and written under a pen name where his two paperbacks have sold in both the English language, French and Spanish translations over half a million copies. Peter was trained as a professional sub-Editor and script Editor and some of his family members are currently engaged full time in the media. Peter was a Full Member of the Royal Television Society in 1995 as a Researcher. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
