Secrets and Spies – Mick Herron, Charlotte Philby and Simon Conway (online)
Saturday 18th September from 1:30 pm – Thursday 30th September from 2:30 pm BST
Modern espionage writers have conspired to bring readers some of the best crime novels of recent years, showing great skill to adapt to ever-changing international dynamics and deliver intrigue and thrills in equal measure. Here, we have three of the best, proving that undercover is the place to be.
Mick Herron’s much lauded and loved Jackson Lamb novels are in production for TV, starring Oscar-winner Gary Oldman, and his latest novel Slough House is a brilliant addition to an unrivalled series. Charlotte Philby – famously the granddaughter of double agent Kim Philby – has released her third page-turning thriller, the deeply unnerving The Second Woman. Simon Conway’s suspenseful thriller The Saboteur is a follow-up to his award-winning novel The Stranger featuring MI-6 operative Jude Lyon.
This event will be chaired by Jacky Collins.
