About this product
- DescriptionTell them, the Night Heron is hunting ...A lone man escapes a labour camp in the dead of night, fleeing across the winter desert of rth-west China. Two decades earlier, he was a spy for the British. Now he finds Beijing transformed and crawling with danger - the fugitive must quickly disappear on its surveillance-blanketed streets or face death. Desperate and ruthless, he reaches out to his one-time MI6 paymasters via journalist Philip Mangan, offering secrets in return for his life. Mangan is dragged into a deeper and deeper whirlpool of lies, as the secrets prove more valuable than either of them could ever have kwn...and t only to the British.
- Author BiographyAs the BBC's China Correspondent, Adam Brookes received repeated visits from an anonymous man offering to sell him military secrets to pass to British Secret Services - a likely 'dangle' designed to entrap him. This event inspired the writing of Night Heron, a game-changing thriller ripped from today's headlines. Having been a foreign correspondent for many years, Adam Brookes is deeply engrained in the world of government secrets. He was based in China, the United States and Indonesia for the BBC, and reported from many of the world's most dangerous countries, including Iraq, Afghanistan, North Korea and Mongolia.
