About the Author

Phil Miller is an investigative journalist and producer. His reporting on British special forces has triggered two government probes. He has worked for Corporate Watch and Reprieve, and written freelance pieces for many publications including Private Eye, Vice, Guardian and The Times. He is currently a staff reporter for Declassified UK, an investigations unit focusing on British foreign policy.


'Miller pilots you into a twilight world, where the pioneers of a rapacious industry blaze a trail of death and destruction across the continents, with a nod and a wink from Whitehall. This is the riveting story of HMG's dirty secret service: an investigative tour de force' -- Jonathan Miller, Foreign Affairs Correspondent, Channel 4 News
'Phil Miller is the UK's most important investigative journalist. This fascinating, unique and brilliantly researched book is one of the most important to be written on the UK's post-war foreign policy' -- Mark Curtis, Author and Historian
'What distinguishes Miller's book is the depth of research. Investigative reporters often have to rely on personal information from anonymous sources, but Miller has also done extensive documentary research... This is why Miller's achievement is so welcome: a book that contains close to 500 references and footnotes yet is thoroughly readable throughout.' -- Paul Rogers, Emeritus Professor of Peace Studies, University of Bradford
'The pace and narrative are Le Carre-esque, but made even more compelling by the fact that the events are true' -- Joe Glenton, ForcesWatch
'Lifts the lid on KMS's activities and the men behind it' -- Daily Mail
'Very, very explosive' -- Qasa Alom, BBC Asian Network
