Personal Quote:

In my field I most admire the American writer Charles McCarry whose 2 books 'Tears of Autumn' and 'The Secret Lovers' I regard as masterpieces... if you can find them I urge you to do so. I also like Len Deighton's early books, particularly 'Funeral in Berlin' and 'Horse Under Water'. I regard his dialogue about the best in the business. See more »
