Hello All -

I am looking for two books based on a British TV show from the late 70s - early 80s called The Sandbaggers.

The 1st book is aptly named The Sandbaggers by Ian Mackintosh and the 2nd is Sandbaggers: Think of a Number by Donald Lankaster.

I am also looking for any recommendations on fictional novels based on or around the British Security Services (MI-5, MI-6, SIS).  Anything along the lines of the British TV series Spooks/MI-5 - basically any "modern" portrayal of the Security Services.  By modern, I mean anything from the Cold War era to today.

I am already familiar with British authors such as Stella Rimington, Stephen Leather, James Barrington and Steve Jackson.  I would like to stay away from well-known authors like Le Carre.  I'm interested in more of the lesser known British authors in the genre!

Can anyone help me out?  Please PM me!

Thanks!
