I’ve been writing books for a long time, first academic tomes in philosophy that are probably gathering dust even though they won a couple of awards, then a brace of non-fiction books that raised some hackles among defenders of the conventional intellectual pieties. One of them was called “The worst book of the year” on the cover of the New Republic.
But in the last several years I’ve been writing historical fiction—thrillers and mysteries set under the louring clouds of the tragic 20th century, especially Britain in the ‘30s, the European killing fields of World War Two, and the Cold War.
