Charles Cumming

Born in Ayr but educated at Eton and Edinburgh University, Charles Cumming is a writer of three spy novels, and a contributing editor of The Week and occasional reviewer for The Mail on Sunday.

In 1995, Charles Cumming was approached for recruitment by the Secret Intelligence Service (popularly known as MI6), and his experiences with MI6 helped shape his first novel, A Spy By Nature, which was published in June 2001. His second novel, The Hidden Man, was published in 2003. He moved to Madrid in 2001, and his third novel, The Spanish Game, involved a plot by the paramilitary Basque organisation ETA to bring down the Spanish government.

Charles Cumming now lives in London with his wife.
