Agent: Julian Alexander
Frank Gardner OBE is the BBC’s award-winning Security Correspondent, reporting on issues of both domestic and international security, most notably on Al Qaeda related terrorism. His first book, Blood and Sand, was a critically acclaimed Sunday Times bestseller. It examines his long-held passion for the Arab world and is also a remarkable account of his survival and recovery from being shot six times at close range by Al Qaeda terrorists. Published in 2009, Far Horizons, documents the tales of his extraordinary travels around the world.
Frank's debut novel, the Sunday Times No.1 bestselling Crisis (Bantam, 2016) introduces Luke Carlton and is the first in an explosive, action-packed series of modern spy thrillers with a chilling frisson of authenticity. The sequel Ultimatum (Bantam, 2018) follows Luke as he races to head off a catastrophic confrontation in the Gulf.
