About the Author

Major Michael Hartland was born in India, educated in England and graduated from the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst in 1950 and was commissioned into the Wiltshire Regiment. He saw service in the Far East, Middle East, Mauritius and Guyana before retiring to the island of Grenada. In 1980 he and his family moved to Barbados where he was offered a Commission in the newly formed Defence Force. He retired in 1999. Since then he has arranged the Tours of the Garrison Historic Area and formed the National Armouries now internationally recognised as the finest collection of 17th century English iron cannon to be found anywhere. In 1996 he was awarded the Meritorious Service Medal for his service with the Defence Force and in 2005 he received the Barbados Service Star for his contribution to Heritage Tourism. He is the author of A Concise & Illustrated Military History of Barbados 1627 - 2007, published in 2007 by Miller Publishing.

More About the Author

Before taking up writing, Michael Hartland spent twenty years travelling widely in Europe, the United States and the Far East as a diplomat, then working in counter-terrorism and for the United Nations. He draws on this experience to describe the secret world of espionage with insight and great authenticity.

His first book DOWN AMONG THE DEAD MEN was published in the United States by Macmillan, New York, and was a runaway bestseller. His ground-breaking series of espionage novels established him as one of the leading thriller writers in the United States and Great Britain. They have been translated into twenty-seven European languages and Japanese, adapted for BBC Radio-4 and television - and remain among the most fast-moving and gripping spy novels ever published.

Michael has also made documentaries on espionage for radio and television; and written for the London Times, Daily Telegraph and Guardian. He and his family live in Devon, where he is working on a new project inspired by contemporary Islamic terrorism.
