About the Author:

Alexander Wilson was a popular and highly acclaimed author of spy and crime fiction in the 1920s and 30s. His characters are based on his own fascinating and largely unknown career in the secret service. He served in the First World War before moving to India to teach as a Professor of English Literature, and began writing spy novels whilst there. During WW2, Wallace worked as an intelligence agent. He enjoyed great success and notoriety for his writing in the 1940s, with reviews in the Telegraph, Observer, Scotsman and the Times Literary Supplement. He died in 1963.

Review:

'The dialogue is reminiscent of that in the early Agatha Christie novels, and there is an air of Simon Templar about Wallace, who seems to be always one step ahead of everyone else.' Books Monthly 'a romping read ... James Bond may find he has a worthy rival' Daily Mail 'Without Alexander Wilson there is no James Bond, there is no Bourne, there is no George Smiley. Unmissable' Tony Parsons
