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.

Review:

Praise for Typhoon: `Gripping, cleverly plotted, meticulously researched' Mail on Sunday `Cumming gives us complex characters and a world-weariness that owe more to Smiley than Bond and mark him out as in the first rank of the new generation of espionage writers' The Times - Top 10 Thrillers of 2008 `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 `A thriller that has everything you could ask for - a twisty, sexy plot, topical themes, memorable characters and plentiful spy lore' Sunday Times, Books of the Year `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
