About the Author

Charles Cumming was born in Scotland in 1971. He has been described as `the man who most successfully gets under the skin of Britain's intelligence agencies' (The Times). In the summer of 1995, he was approached for recruitment by the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6). A year later he moved to Montreal where he began working on a novel based on his experiences with MI6, and A Spy by Nature was published in the UK in 2001.

Reviews

Praise for Typhoon:

`Gripping, cleverly plotted, meticulously researched' Mail on Sunday

`If you read one spy novel this year, make it Typhoon' The London Paper

`A wholly compelling and sophisticated spy novel - vivid and disturbing - immaculately researched and full of harrowing contemporary relevance' William Boyd

Praise for A Foreign Country:

`We are in Smiley country, but with extra 21st century nuance ... Cumming has an exquisite touch and we should treasure him' Daily Mail

`Refreshing, plausible and effective ... Best of all is the sheer pace of the narrative' Spectator

`You are likely to be up for most of the night to find out how this novel ends. It grips from the first page ... A fast-moving treat' The Scotsman
