Peter Paget grew up in the West Country in a well-to-do family in post-war Britain. Aged just 17, he impressed government Cabinet officials by inventing an oil-spill defence system, which is still used today. Shortly afterwards, this connection led to him being co-opted into the British Intelligence services, for whom he has carried out undercover missions ever since. A US security service also recruited Peter for a number of assignments, which led at one stage to him having an office next to that of astronaut, Edgar Mitchell, the sixth man to walk on the moon. Peter was also on scene shortly after the crash that killed Princess Diana and he describes what really happened that tragic night in the Pont de L’Alma underpass. All the while, Peter led a double life as a husband, father and author of UFO books, based on some of his assignments. He has also worked at different times as a lecturer, alternative therapist and international adventurer. In this autobiography, Peter details some of his missions for Her Majesty’s government while tracking down the source of many mysterious UFO sightings while working undercover. It is an enthralling look at the difficult and often dangerous life of a secret spook, risking his own life multiple times to protect the British people.
