About the Author
Desmond Bagley was a multi-million-copy selling author of 16 adventure thrillers, all still in print. Moving to South Africa after WW2, his transition from unskilled printer’s apprentice, aircraft engineer, mine worker, nightclub photographer and radio scriptwriter to one of the world’s most respected thriller writers is legendary, described by The Times as a ‘craftsmanlike thriller novelist’. Returning to the UK in the 1960s, he lived with his wife Joan in Devon and then on Guernsey, where a blue plaque was unveiled in his honour in 2018.
Desmond Bagley was born in 1923 in Kendal and brought up in Blackpool, beginning his working life, aged 14, in the printing industry. He wrote 16 novels, becoming one of the world's top-selling authors, with his books translated into more than 30 languages. He died in 1983.
