9781447215257: The Ashes of Loda

When British correspondent for Russia Lord Tim Quainton falls in love with Marya Razcinski whilst on leave in London, little does he know what a web of intrigue he is entering. Quainton's suspicions are first awakened when he discovers a secret about Marya's father and his suspicious past. But Quainton must immediately push his fears out of his mind and embark upon a lengthy assignment into the heart of the Ukraine.

Soon, though, Quainton finds himself suddenly hotly pursued through perilous, icy conditions by a sinister enemy who won't rest until he is dead. What does this terrifying turn of events have to do with Quainton's furtive enquiries into Raczinski's past? And will he make it back to London in time to find out?

About the Author:

Andrew Garve is the pen name of Paul Winterton (1908-2001). He was born in Leicester and educated at the Hulme Grammar School, Manchester and Purley County School, Surrey, after which he took a degree in Economics at London University. He was on the staff of The Economist for four years, and then worked for fourteen years for the London News Chronicle as reporter, leader writer and foreign correspondent. He was assigned to Moscow from 1942 to 1945, where he was also the correspondent of the BBC's Overseas Service.

After the war he turned to full-time writing of detective and adventure novels and produced more than forty-five books. His work was serialized, televised, broadcast, filmed and translated into some twenty languages. He is noted for his varied and unusual backgrounds - which have included Russia, newspaper offices, the West Indies, ocean sailing, the Australian outback, politics, mountaineering and forestry - and for never repeating a plot.

Andrew Garve was a founder member and first joint secretary of the Crime Writers' Association.
