David Downing

The follow-up to Jack of Spies, Soho's lead Spring '14 title. Jack McColl, a Scottish car salesman who moonlights as a spy for His Majesty's Navy, takes readers on an epic adventure across the world on the eve of World War One. India, 1915. Jack McColl is on a reconnaissance mission to better defend the British Empire against Bengali terrorists and their German allies. In England, meanwhile, Jack's former lover Caitlin Hanley witnesses the execution of her brother for a treasonous plot which Jack helped foil. His execution has only intensified Caitlin's involvement in the cause of Home Rule. An uprising in Dublin will bring Caitlin and Jack back together as lovers--and enemies. Follows the paperback release of Jack of Spies, as well as a specially commissioned and designed paperback reissue of all 6 of the Station series books. Primed by David Downing's upcoming first-ever US tour, getting him into more stores and augmenting his fan base. David Downing is not only one of Soho Crime's cult bestsellers, with sales of his Station series mushrooming every year, but also a critical darling. Set in a provocative moment in history and depicts the Irish Republican movement, the American suffrage movement, Indian uprisings against the British Raj, the rise of German antagonism, and other fascinating historical handles.
