The Gatekeeper (Paperback)
The CIA has a problem. One of its senior members - an Assistant Deputy Director (ADDI) - is suspected of being involved in drug trafficking. The CIA Inspector General cannot use its own staff to investigate out of the risk that it will alert those involved. They need to keep the whole matter contained because they do not know how many other people are involved, or at what level in the security and intelligence services drug use has penetrated. With assistance from the Drug Enforcement Administration, Mark Taylor an ex-Special Forces officer follows the ADDI on a trip to Afghanistan in an attempt to find the truth. That mission proves deadly for some and Mark Taylor himself becomes a target. This story involves the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service as they desperately try to protect a mole in the US, and the British MI6 who will not commit to what they know. The US FBI also get involved with deadly results. In the complex world of the security and intelligence services, Donald Peters takes us on a journey through a deadly game in which the actions of a few have a profound impact on the lives of the major players.
