TIM GLISTER talks to Paul Burke about his new novel RED CORONA and the 8 books that set him on the path to becoming a spy writer.
Red Corona:
It’s 1961 and the white heat of the Space Race is making the Cold War even colder. Richard Knox is a secret agent in big trouble. He’s been hung out to dry by a traitor in MI5, and the only way to clear his name could destroy him. Meanwhile in a secret Russian city, brilliant scientist Irina Valera makes a discovery that will change the world, and hand the KGB unimaginable power. Desperate for a way back into MI5, Knox finds an unlikely ally in Abey Bennett, a CIA recruit who’s determined to prove herself whatever the cost… As the age of global surveillance dawns, three powers will battle for dominance, and three people will fight to survive…
