Our man in Sweden, author Jeremy Duns, has been a busy agent lately. His novel, Free Agent, was released in paperback earlier this summer, and its sequel, Free Country, is coming out this month. Both novels are also now available in kindle editions for you Spy Vibers with special gadgets. With this flurry of activity, and the BBC option on his spy trilogy, Jeremy has sent a number of updates that I think Spy Vibers will want to check out. From Jeremy:
Hi everyone, some good news. Free Country is reviewed in today's Guardian, which says: 'With its subtly deployed late-60s detail, Free Country is a treat for fans of traditional Len Deighton-style spy thrillers.' The rest is here. (It's not every day you get outed in the press as a lover of Roger Moore Bond films, but I should just say that I prefer the Connery ones!)
I was interviewed at the Harrogate festival by the website Unbound, and you can read that here. The audio of the interview is here. I've also taken part in a 'virtual panel' discussing the spy thriller with authors JJ Cooper and Adrian Magson at Permission To Kill, which can be read here.
Finally, Amazon is launching its Kindle e-reader in the UK this month. Free Agent and Free Country are both available to buy for it. [also available on Kindle at Amazon US here].
