One of the great things about The Curzon Group is the chance to discover new authors and new talent. A couple of people who really deserve a wider audience are Louise McCartney who is writing and publshing her own series of thriller. Take a look at them at her website. And Tony Walker might be living in the US, but he is still British, so we'll claim him as one of our own. His SAS stories look right up my street. You can check them out at his website.

This month is of course the centenary of the thriller writer Eric Ambler. Penguin are marking it with the publication of some of hios best books with introductions by writers such as James Fenton and Norman Stone. Ambler, of course, is one of the writers who has inspired this group. He was one of the creators of the British tradition of spy fiction - and it is great to see him getting the attention he dererves.

Brian Hunt has been in touch about his thriller 'The Darwin Manuscript'. It's a great story, with a really interesting premise: that there was a secret document written by Charles Darwin that was never published. There is plenty of background material as well on Darwin...but the real fun is guessing what is in the manuscript. You can check it out on Brian's website.
