Discover Lachlan Page’s Magical Disinformation: a spy action-thriller with a satirical edge set amongst the Colombian peace process. Described by one reviewer as “Our Man in Havana meets A Clear and Present Danger.”
Oliver Jardine is a spy in Colombia, enamoured with local woman Veronica Velasco.
As the Colombian government signs a peace agreement with the FARC guerrillas, Her Majesty’s government decides a transfer is in order to focus on more pertinent theatres of operation.
In a desperate attempt to remain in Colombia, Jardine begins to fabricate his intelligence reports. But the consequences soon take on a life of their own.
In the era of ‘fake news’ in the land of magical realism, fiction can be just as dangerous as the truth.
“Our Man in Havana meets A Clear and Present Danger” - ARC Book Reviewer
“A slyly comedic thriller with a good amount of action, suspense and fantastical story on events in Colombia.” - ARC Book Reviewer
“Imagine a work of fiction set in Colombia where the line between real and unreal, fact and fiction no longer exists...Think Waugh, think Greene and then a smattering of de Bernieres and you know what you're in for, a romp of a read which brings a smile to your lips as you enjoy this fast moving tragicomedy.” - Richard McColl, Colombia Calling Podcast
