About this author

Law graduate Trinity College Dublin. Turned pro actor in 1971 playing Hamlet in Dublin. Nominated for Best Newcomer by London Theatre Critics for his performance in 'Children of the Wolf.' Starred in four Hammer films, played Dorian Gray in Hollywood. Veteran now of 36 international feature films and countless TV around the world. Six books published - five in Australia, latest in America and Germany.


I've read every one of his books and loved them. Does anyone out there know of similar fiction? I've read all le Carre too. I'm talking espionage fiction - but more modern then, say, Len Deighton. Set in Russia or central Europe?

“Love is the word, slow is the pace of such love. This book is both thoroughly charming, romantic as well as eloquently written. Not for those who have a penchant for B and D or rough sex; no hint of ‘wham, bang and thanks you ma’am here. No sir! Thi ...more
