Editorial Reviews

Review

"I don't recall being quite as thoroughly chilled by Solzhenitsyn's works as I was with Rupert Colley's The Black Maria. Passion, loyalty, love, betrayal, and death play out between a small cast of finely crafted characters within a page-turning plotline, as they always do in Colley's historical fiction."

Kathryn Atwood, author of Women Heroes of World War II.

About the Author

Rupert Colley was born one Christmas Day, which means, as a child, helost out on presents. Nonetheless, looking back on it, he lived a childhoodwith a "silver spoon in my mouth" - brought up in a rambling manorhouse in the beautiful Devon countryside.  It's been downhill ever since.
 
He was a librarian for a long time, a noble profession. Then he starteda series called History In An Hour, "history for busy people", whichhe sold to HarperCollins UK. 
 
He now lives in London with his wife, two children and dog (a fluffycockapoo) and writes historical fiction, mainly 20th century war and misery. Historical fiction with heart.
