Discover Lachlan Page's Magical Disinformation a spy action-thriller with a satirical edge set amongst the Colombian peace process. Described by one reviewer as Our Man in Havana meets A Clear and Present Danger.

Oliver Jardine is a spy in Colombia, enamoured with local woman Veronica Velasco. As the Colombian government signs a peace agreement with the FARC guerrillas, Her Majesty's government decides a transfer is in order to focus on more pertinent theatres of operation. In a desperate attempt to remain in Colombia, Jardine begins to fabricate his intelligence reports. But the consequences soon take on a life of their own. In the era of 'fake news' in the land of magical realism, fiction can be just as dangerous as the truth.
