How very odd. I’ve got a book about that. I wrote it in 1983 and published it on Amazon in 2017. This was the review by Geoffrey Wansell in the Daily Mail:
Former Daily Mail reporter Passmore first wrote this novel in 1983, when it was dismissed by publishers as ‘a little far-fetched’. How wrong they were.
Featuring a new Left-wing British Prime Minister committed to scrapping the Trident missile fleet, a Russian President meddling in foreign elections and a U.S. President determined to put his country first, it feels astonishingly contemporary.
The plot revolves around a Trident submarine captain and his Admiral father intent on ensuring Britain keeps its nuclear options open, a newspaper reporter and a secretary in the Defence office who falls into a honeytrap set by Russian intelligence.
Fast-moving and immensely prescient, there are echoes of the early works of Ken Follett and Frederick Forsyth — and that is no faint praise.
The tragedy is that it remained hidden in the author’s attic for 34 years. Let us hope he has time to write many more.

I’ll buy one to John, now that you’re famous! You still in the IoS? Hope all well.
Yes. Going straight from here to Porto. Where are you?
I shall get a copy pronto! I expect the selling price will return to the correct level, instead of finding them in charity shops. How many impressions were there?
Amazon prints on demand, although most sales are ebooks now. Thank you for your support.
I’ll be getting myself a copy of that.
looking forward to reading it!
