Shadow of the Jaguar

By Kenneth Benton

Thriller, Crime & mystery | eBook


Counterinsurgency expert Peter Craig is preparing to travel to Lima to brief the Peruvian security services. Just as he is preparing to leave, a mysterious lunch invitation with a Secret Service officer in London gives Craig a new mission and a whole new set of problems – a missing mountaineer rejected by MI6 and with a point to prove, in a volunteer community with revolution in the air, where little is as it seems. As an international hostage crisis explodes around him, Craig finds himself fighting for his life in the shadow of the mountain peak that the villagers call the Jaguar as the deadline for a fiendish ultimatum approaches. First published in 1973 as Craig and the Jaguar, reissued in ebook format by Kenneth Benton’s literary estate in 2011.



Kenneth Benton was born in Wolverhampton, England, in 1909 and, after a period teaching in Vienna, was recruited to MI6 in the Vienna Passport Control Office in 1937; working as a Passport Control Officer (PCO), a common cover for British intelligence agents abroad, much of his work was in translating and interpreting covert messages. After the Anschluss, Kenneth and his wife Peggie Benton (also working for the Foreign Office) were relocated to Riga, Latvia, until the Soviet occupation of the Baltic states in 1940.
