A Wolf in Berlin - Operation Red Comet, by John H. Williams


In April 1966 a Soviet Yak Jet Fighter overflying the British Sector of Berlin, crashed into the Stossensee Lake, not far from the British Military Headquarters. The aircraft was fitted with the top secret Spin Skip radar system. Whilst the British military mounted a salvage operation, the Russians made an armed incursion into the British Sector with the aim of protecting their aircraft.  There followed an armed confrontation at the crash site, resulting in in the Russians backing down but being permitted to observe the salvage operation.  One of the most spectacular intelligence coups of the cold war was carried out under the watchful gaze of the Soviet observers, when various parts of the aircraft were spirited away to the Royal Aircraft Establishment in Farnborough for examination. In this fictional account, the Russians planned to retrieve the secret radar component and sent a KGB agent into West Berlin and activated a sleeper agent at the British Headquarters. A Military Police Corporal and his girlfriend, were blackmailed into assisting the East German Stasi and stole the radar component for them.


One of the scientists from Farnborough overseeing the recovery operation discovered that the aircraft component was missing and Sergeant Anthony WOLF; a SIB Investigator was brought in to carry out a covert Investigation.  The perpetrator was identified but both he and his girlfriend are killed by the Stasi.  New leads had to be developed and the spy’s safe houses identified. During surveillance of the targets, Wolf was involved in a gun battle with a Stasi Agent, resulting in the death of four US CID agents and the Stasi Agent.  


A joint SIB, US CID and Intelligence task force are able to track down the missing aircraft component, but not without further British and American fatalities.
