BRIAN LANDERS

Brian Landers, author of the acclaimed history, Empires Apart, has turned novelist with his Dylan Spy series. Set in 1970s Brazil, Awakening of Spies, is part thriller, part whodunnit, part romance.

Future novels in the Dylan Series  illustrate the murky roles of MI6, the CIA and the KGB in the darker corners of twentieth century history – regime change in the Middle East, Mafia corruption in Italy, Anti-Semitic nationalism in Eastern Europe and apartheid in Southern Africa.
