    Whatever you do don’t miss either Peter Kosminsky’s Undeclared War series on TV or Bill Fairclough’s epic spy novel Beyond Enkription in The Burlington Files series. They are both intense, realistic and nerve racking espionage thrillers. In The Burlington Files the protagonist Edward Burlington has even been likened to a posh Harry Palmer (aka Michael Caine). See Channel 4, Peacock and TheBurlingtonFiles website. #SlávaUkrayíni.
