Most people only know spies from books, movies and TV series. But how close to reality are the these fictional spies? This new book will reveal the answer to that question as it tells the story of a real spy who used to be in service for Her Majesty’s Government. Only a small number of people is considered smart enough to be selected and trained as a spy. Andrew Gilbrook was chosen at the age of 16, and the only person to still pass selection without an education through the university system. In his fascinating book, Andy describes his unbelievable life from the beginning, when he was a child who had no clue what the future would bring him. The readers follow him until the end of his career. The job as a spy caused him to suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, after facing interrogation, torture and being put in front of a firing squad in war-torn Angola.
The decision to write “An Ordinary Guy, An Unknown Spy” was made by Andrew Gilbrook in 2012, when he was informed his ex-MI6 secretary had died from cancer. The author himself was close to breaking down mentally and realized that opening up about his secret life to his friends and family was the only way to save his own sanity. His autobiography is carefully written to avoid revealing any government secrets. This is his personal story: thrilling, surprising and an eye-opener into the life of a real spy.
