Product description

Product Description

Peter Paget grew up in the West Country in a well-to-do family in post-war Britain. Aged just 17, he impressed government Cabinet officials by inventing an oil-spill defence system, which is still used today.
Shortly afterwards, this connection led to him being co-opted into the British Intelligence services, for whom he has carried out undercover missions ever since. A US security service also recruited Peter for a number of assignments, which led at one stage to him having an office next to that of astronaut, Edgar Mitchell, the sixth man to walk on the moon.
Peter was also on scene shortly after the crash that killed Princess Diana and he describes what really happened that tragic night in the Pont de L’Alma underpass.
All the while, Peter led a double life as a husband, father and author of UFO books, based on some of his assignments. He has also worked at different times as a lecturer, alternative therapist and international adventurer.
In this autobiography, Peter details some of his missions for Her Majesty’s government while tracking down the source of many mysterious UFO sightings while working undercover. It is an enthralling look at the difficult and often dangerous life of a secret spook, risking his own life multiple times to protect the British people.
Secret Life of a Spook is available on Kindle and in Paperback.

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.
