I, Spry: The Rise And Fall Of A Master Spy
I, Spry: The Rise And Fall Of A Master Spy
With a nuclear arms race set to escalate the Cold War, Prime Minister Menzies appoints Colonel Charles Spry to take charge of the fledgling Australian Security Intelligence Organisation, ASIO. The staunchly anti-communist, fifth-generation soldier recruits new officers to fight a covert war against a cunning enemy. Their primary task is to investigate Australians spying for the Soviets and infiltrate Communist Party branches with undercover agents. From Spry's brazen attempt to influence the 1958 federal election to his controversial investigation into Liberal Prime Minister John Gorton, Spry emerges as an enigmatic master spy who ultimately subverts the very democracy he is charged with protecting.
