The 'Failsafe Query’ is a thrilling novel exploring the legacy of an unknown list of Russian moles in the British establishment when it surfaces for the first time in decades.

Weeks before Intelligence Officer Alfie Chapman is due to abscond his high level British Intelligence Officer role, ready to expose grave revelations about British Government spy rings, he disappears. His plan to ‘whistle-blow’ and reveal thousands of secret files sees ex-agent Sean Richardson brought back from disgrace to find him. When Alfie is feared dead, so begins a shadowy race to find his body which holds the clues to a chest of files deadly to the world of British Intelligence activity.

The race to the body finds Richardson embroiled in a dangerous game, shadowed by dark actors’ intent to win the prize of startling information, as senior establishment figures are left to nurse their nervous anxiety. Fearful at every turn, Richardson is unaware of who knows of the mission, but feels the truth is ruthlessly buried as to why he was brought back in. He cannot trust anyone.
