Operational Contact Code and Local Handler

Spooks required for Operation Snare

It has come to light that Noah and Clemmie, the hero and heroine of this book, did not in fact accomplish all that they set out to find. They have left unfinished business, and there is believed to be a further Russian mole amongst the staff at The Nare feeding information to Moscow.


Aspiring resident agents are being recruited in order to help identify this mole. If you have the appropriate credentials to make an approach you are requested to make immediate contact with the local handler through mpenny@narehotel.co.uk . To establish the identity of genuine agents the correct Operational Contact Code and Handler’s name will be required.


Once aspiring agents are embedded in the establishment they will receive a full briefing from the local handler. Remaining undercover at all times, agents will then proceed to identify and then make covert contact with the mole. It is essential that a full operational cover story is maintained at all times, the mole is not spooked and the intel channel remains intact. It is understood Russian agents are also in active communication with their mole.
