Long-standing BBC editor Ian Richardson has exploited his wide experience of broadcasting and the Middle East to write his first novel, The Mortal Maze.

A thriller, the book takes in terrorism, espionage, corruption, love and betrayal, http://www.themortalmaze.com/comments.html.

Ian grew up in a newspaper family in rural Australia, but after the family business was sold, he switched to broadcast journalism – first in Bendigo and Melbourne, Australia, then in London with BBC radio and television. His senior BBC posts included head of World Service foreign correspondents, a founding editor of BBC World Television, and the founding managing-editor of BBC Arabic Television – a role rich in source material for his new book.

    His earlier book, God’s Triangle, a non-fiction detective story, is currently in development in Australia as a feature film.
