Len Deighton was trained as an illustrator at the Royal College of Art in London. His writing career began with The Ipcress File which was a spectacular success and was made into a classic film starring Michael Caine.
Since then he has written many books of fiction and non-fiction. These include spy stories and war novels such as Goodbye Mickey Mouse and Bomber which the BBC recently made into a daylong radio drama in 'real time'. Last year Deighton's history of World War Two, Blood, Tears and Folly, was published to wide acclaim Jack Higgins called it 'an absolute landmark'.
Three of his Bernard Samson stories - Game, Set and Match - were made into an internationally aired thirteen-hour television series. These were followed by Hook, Line, and Sinker. He is at present working on the third Samson trilogy, Faith, Hope and Charity.
