A Colder War
Paul Wallinger, MI6's most senior agent in Turkey, dies in a puzzling plane crash.
A top-ranking Iranian military official is blown up while trying to defect to the west. An investigative journalist is attested and imprisoned for writing an article critical of the Turkish government. An Iranian nuclear scientist is assassinated on the streets of Theran. These thre incidents, seemingly unrelented, have one crucial link. Each of the three had been recently recruited by Western intelligence, before being removed or killed.
