Parallel Lives chapter 90

Simon flung the intel reports back onto the desk and resumed his earlier pastime of staring out of the window.
The last two years had been good to Simon, ever since his transfer to head up the Special Projects Intelligence Department. Following what Gerald insisted on calling the ‘Debacle in Devon’, research efforts into the project had intensified, with the country being scoured for potential level three-ers and even utilizing volunteers that were high end level two-ers. The volunteers had not fared well, with two ending up sectioned and one dying from a reaction to the drug regime needed. However the pre-emptive intelligence gleaned had reaped bountiful rewards, especially with the worsening relations between Britain and America.
In fact the Americans had become increasingly paranoid as every attempt to break up British spy rings were thwarted just ahead of them. Their belief was that American Intelligence had been riddled with informers and they had consequently turned their considerable resources into a massive witch hunt internally. This in turn had aided British attempts to obtain previously secret information regarding American weapons systems the British had bought in years gone by when relations had been better.
Now Simon's superiors were baying for more of the same, the political landscape was strewn with rocks and boulders and they wanted the means to scale these obstacles. Unfortunately for Simon the pre-emptive intelligence was drying up, despite the endeavours of the scientists running the program. No matter what they tried, they kept running into blocked doors at every turn, or produced intel that was the equivalent of old news.
Simon turned back to the reports he had scattered over his desk a few minutes earlier and shook his head. He needed to produce some good intelligence soon, and it didn't look as though he was going to succeed the way things were panning out.
