A bright new day breaks over the Bavarian city of Munich. A crowd of communicators gather at the conference centre to hear the man speak. Invite only. A chemistry meeting. Many of them had only ever heard his name whispered in passing, his company an industry rumour that had lingered in the dark corners of advertising history: The Black Operatives Department. The Bay of Pigs, a November day in Texas, a Princess who had vanished with incredible sleight of hand, Project Blue, Project Orange, Snowden and, of course, Brexit had all been campaigns attributed to this ghost agency. He’s looking for partners, to expand, to franchise and to save his business by bringing his clandestine communication products into mainstream marketing. Will he find any takers?
