Book description

More Cloak than Dagger: One Woman’s Career in Secret Intelligence is the remarkable autobiography of Molly J. Sasson, who, during her long and eventful career, worked with secret intelligence organisations in three countries – Britain, the Netherlands and Australia – at the height of the Cold War.

Not long after World War II Sasson was responsible for the safety of one of the Western world’s most prized defectors from the Soviet Union, famous aeronautics engineer Grigori Tokaty, and his family. She later headed an intelligence section of the Joint Air Photographic Intelligence Centre at Nuneham Park, which monitored Soviet industrial capacity and troop movements in communist Eastern Europe. From 1954, she worked in the Netherlands with the Dutch Domestic Security Service, the BVD. In 1969 she accepted a position as officer with ASIO and remained with the organisation for a tumultuous 14 years.

“It is her cool appraisal of the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO) that will command most attention and raises still unanswered questions of great importance.”

Peter Coleman AO, author and former parliamentarian, from the book’s foreword
