Families of Spies
Brian Landers (Author)
DescriptionJulia Dylan's aunt, Eveline Sadeghi, vanishes while sailing from Kefalonia to Syracuse in Sicily. Julia and her new husband Thomas abandon their honeymoon and join the search. In Syracuse they encounter a suspiciously well-informed detective who is investigating the murder of an Iranian journalist. Thomas is convinced that Eveline's disappearance is somehow connected. Julia's uncle, the Director General of Defence Intelligence, asks MI6 to investigate but MI6 has higher priorities. The CIA have uncovered a Russian spy at a NATO airbase north of Syracuse. Could it all be connected? And could the connection go all the way back to an infamous Mafia massacre in 1947? To unravel the mystery of Eveline Sadeghi's death, Julia and Thomas Dylan must not just understand history but must understand families, especially their own. John le Carre meets Agatha Christie in the second gripping novel in The Dylan Series. AUTHOR: Brian Landers started writing newspaper columns to help pay his university bar bills and since then has written articles for various journals, newspapers and websites. He was once interviewed for a job at the government spy agency GCHQ in Cheltenham but decided that travelling the world would be more exciting. His first full time role was helping a former Director General of Defence Intelligence and a motley collection of ex-spooks set up a political intelligence unit in the City of London. Out of this sprang the character of Thomas Dylan, a novice who over the years progresses through the labyrinthine world of British Intelligence. Later, as a director of Waterstone's and then of Penguin his love of writing was rekindled. His first book, Empires Apart was published in the UK, US and India and was largely written while commuting to work. He has an MBA from London Business School and in 2018 he was awarded an OBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours.
