The accidental spy

The accidental spy

O'Driscoll, Sean, author

David Rupert, a complete outsider with no connection to Ireland, rose to the very top of the Real IRA - all while working for the FBI and British intelligence. But his story is really about just how a bored, frustrated New York trucking manager becomes one of Britain's most valued spies, brings down the entire IRA structure and makes $10 million dollars in the process. Along the way he finds himself in the most extraordinary and terrifying situations - he is involved in major terrorist operations, sets up an Iraqi sting operation and organises US arms shipments with a man being trained to kill the then British prime minister, Tony Blair
