For a time during the Cold War John Fullerton worked as a ‘contract labourer’ in the role of head agent for Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service and this forms the basis of his latest novel, Spy Game, to be published shortly by Burning Chair. As a Reuters correspondent and editor he had postings in Hong Kong, Delhi, Beirut, Nicosia and London – all told, living or working in 40 countries and covering a dozen wars. His novels include The Monkey House, A Hostile Place, Clap (JW Diaz), This Green Land, White Boys Don’t Cry and The Reticent Executioner. He lives in Scotland.
