Derek Marlowe was born in London in 1938. He was a novelist, playwright and screen writer. A Dandy in Aspic, his first novel, was originally published in 1966 and became an international bestseller. It was translated into 15 languages and Marlowe himself adapted the book into a film starring Laurence Harvey and Mia Farrow. He was the author of eight further novels, including The Disappearance, which became a film starring Donald Sutherland. Marlowe had one son, Ben, and died in 1996 at the age of fifty-eight.
'Graceful and brilliant' Sir Tom Stoppard 'A classic of the cold war spy stories - one of the earliest and one of the best. Marlowe's Eberlin/Krasnevin is on the run from himself on different levels and in different places: the evocations of London and Berlin in the 1960s are superb.' Piers Paul Read 'Derek Marlowe writes like John Le Carre at the top of his form' Yorkshire Post
