From the Editor

Kevin Wignall is the master of the intelligent international thriller. As soon as I open one of Kevin’s bestselling books, I know I am going to be immersed in a highly cinematic world with instantly relatable characters, a chase that will traverse the globe, and a pulse-pounding race to the finish that always leaves me breathless.

Former CIA officer James “Wes” Wesley believes he has already paid the ultimate price for his patriotism, locked up in a French jail. But when he learns that his ex-wife, Rachel, has been killed in a terrorist attack in Spain and the young son Wes hadn’t known existed is missing, Wes is released on compassionate grounds to uncover the truth. Journeying across Europe, he will reopen old wounds and uncover long-buried secrets that will push him to the limit.

I suspect that, like Wignall’s previous book To Die in Vienna, which is reportedly coming to the silver screen starring Jake Gyllenhaal, the characters from The Names of the Dead will also soon delight fans on the big screen.

- Laura Deacon, Editor
