Gavin Lyall is a master of his craft
'For style without affection, ruthlessness without the usual mindlessness, Lyall is likely to be your man' - The Guardian. When Gavin Lyall's first book, THE WRONG SIDE OF THE SKY, was published in 1961, P.G. Woodhouse wrote: 'Terrific! When better novels of suspense than this are written, lead me to them.' After six more adventure novels including MIDNIGHT PLUS ONE, winner of the Crime Writers' Association Silver Dagger, Lyall created Major Harry Maxim, Whitehall trouble-shooter (played on TV by Charles Dance). Gavin Lyall lives in London and is married to Katharine Whitehorn
