Interpol Confidential by Michael E. RoseA scathing satire about Interpol, by the organization’s former Chief of Communications, Michael E. Rose.

In the run-up to Interpol’s General Assembly, something is truly amiss. The world’s largest international police organisation is heaving with internal strife, petty rivalries, and treachery.

For the Secretary General, re-election is not enough. What he wants is a unanimous victory and he is willing to go to any lengths to secure it. It will not be easy. Not only are others, both inside and outside Interpol, trying to stop his re-election, but some hate him so much that they are plotting his ultimate humiliation. His enemies are legion; that much is clear. What is less clear is who exactly is plotting against him, and which of his many, many transgressions they want revenge for.

As the date of the General Assembly draws near, all parties redouble their efforts to get what they want. The result is chaos. The result is farce. The result is not Interpol’s finest hour.

INTERPOL CONFIDENTIAL is available from the author’s website.
