The controversy surrounding the book by ex-MI6 spy Richard Tomlinson continues. The Sunday Times won the rights to publish extracts; a publisher in Scotland is to print it and 192.com has said it will import thousands of copies into the UK, so bringing it into the public arena and bypassing the Official Secrets Act.

However, despite the furore, large number of column inches and TV programmes devoted to it, it would seem that Amazon.co.uk have never heard of it and even denies its existence. Funny, because Amazon.com not only lists it but gives the ISBN number, a price and a review.

Tap The Big Breach into Amazon.co.uk's search engine though - no results. Try the ISBN number - 0970554788. Nada. How very peculiar.

Good to see that Amazon has gone for the stick-your-head-in-the-sand approach. ®
