The doyen of thriller writers comes to Scotland’s Book Town to tell us about his new novel. Perhaps best known for his Second World War thrillers Fatherland, Munich and V2, Harris is going back to the 17th century in Act of Oblivion. In 1660 General Edward Whalley and Colonel William Goffe are on the run. They have been found guilty of high treason for the murder of Charles I and Richard Nayler, secretary of the regicide committee, will stop at nothing to track them down, even if it means crossing continents to do so. A master storyteller, whose visit to the festival is not one to miss.
