] (15/7/08). The first book, a spy novel called "Dead Spy Running", will be published in July 2009. Its publisher, Patrick Janson-Smith, told "The Bookseller": "John Le Carre meets Jason Bourne - it's bloody good. He has reinvented the spy novel for the 21st century." He has written two other books, both of them spy novels: "The Riot Act", published by Serpent's Tail 1997, and "The Cardamom Club", published by Blackamber in 2003 (now part of Arcadia Books). "The Cardamom Club" was also published in India (2004) by Penguin Books. "The Riot Act" was shortlisted by the Crime Writers' Association for its best first novel award, and has been published by Gallimard in France as part of its acclaimed "serie noir" imprint.
