Oggy Boytchev escaped from behind the Iron Curtain in 1986. Soon after, he joined the BBC in London where he spent the next 25 years covering international conflicts.  Latterly, he became John Simpson’s producer and accompanied him on dangerous undercover assignments around the world.

The Unbeliever is a panorama of Cold War paranoia and intrigue spanning four decades, told through the life of one extraordinary – and real – spy.  A story of love, loyalty, ambition and betrayal, it is a gripping and inventive historical novel, perfect for fans of John le Carré.
