Throughout the Second World War, Britain’s defence against the enemy within was Eric Roberts, a former bank clerk from Epsom. 

Codenamed Jack King, he single-handedly built a network of hundreds of British Nazi sympathisers, with many passing secrets to him in the mistaken belief that he was a Gestapo officer.  ‘Operation Fifth Column’ was kept so secret it was omitted from the reports MI5 sent to Winston Churchill. 

In a narrative that grips like a thriller, and drawing on newly declassified documents, Robert Hutton’s Agent Jack shatters the comfortable notion that Britain could never have succumbed to fascism.
