Alan Johnson The Last Train to Gipsy Hill
We welcome back the former Labour Home Secretary and award-winning memoirist who has now turned his considerable writing skills to fiction. His debut novel is a gripping slice of contemporary espionage. A dull commuter called Gary Nelson sees a beautiful woman on a train who, whilst applying her makeup in the carriage, holds up her mirror and Gary reads the words ‘Help me’. Life will never be dull again.
