Roberts reveals that Forsyth’s bestseller The Dogs of War, is based on the thriller writer’s real-life involvement with a failed coup attempt in Equatorial Guinea.

The Equatorial Guinea coup d'état attempt, also known as the Wonga Coup, failed to replace President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo with exiled opposition politician Severo Moto. Mercenaries organised by mainly British financiers were arrested in Zimbabwe on 7 March before they could carry out the plot.

Prosecutors alleged that Moto was to be installed as the new president in return. This is the farcical tale that Adam Roberts - a former Economist Johannesburg bureau chief - has christened The Wonga Coup.
