it is 1982. Argentina has just invaded the Falkland Islands and Danny Rook is trawling through hundreds of half-crazy letters sent to the MoD by members of the British public, wanting to help. But one letter stands out as not so barmy. It suggests the Junta could employ chemical warfare, based on leftover stocks from a secret Nazi wartime operation…

And the story stacks up pretty well. What’s worse – it could prove to be a big embarrassment for Britain.

A few days later, Danny’s boss asks him to interrogate an Argentinian prisoner at Ascension Island – “There is nobody else!” But it’s a ruse to get him aboard the Task Force.

Once again, it’s time for Danny Rook, unlikely crusader, to put his objections to one side and follow his nose…

Studying history, we sometimes come to a point where the provable facts run out, and then pick up again on the other side.

The genre of Secret History – which is fiction, after all – invites readers to think about the previously untold story and perhaps to wonder whether it could be true.

At its core, Secret History deals with real people, real times, a wealth of established facts, and a skeleton in the cupboard that fits the facts… It’s just that nobody has ever rattled those bones before. The point of Secret History is the secret. By the end of the story, the secret has to remain buried, known only to a select few – and the reader, of course. But although the secret doesn’t change anything, it certainly might explain something…

In the end, who can disprove a story that has never been chronicled in the media or documented in the archives, when all other details appear to be established facts?
