Meaning of sentence possibly spy

Posted by Mage Warrior on June 11, 2003

Hi all,
I came across the sentence '...under starters orders...'
What exactly does that mean? It comes from the novel 'Tinker, tailor, soldier, spy' from LeCarré, so it might have a relation to the intelligence community.
If anyone can help...
Thanks
