Get Contraband, the first novel in the Gregory Sallust series, free for the month of November.
‘Before there was James Bond, there was Gregory Sallust,’ and before Ian Fleming, there was Dennis Wheatley. A best-selling spy novelist at the outset of World War II, Wheatley was hired by Churchill and became a master of deception for Great Britain, turning fantasy adventures into real-time espionage (the reverse, it could be argued, of Ian Fleming).
In the 1930s Dennis Wheatley was Britain’s most popular thriller writer. As the war began, he started a series of novels featuring a ruthless and charming secret agent, a connoisseur of rare wines and fancy women; Gregory Sallust.
We are excited to offer Contraband, book one in the Gregory Sallust series, free for the month of November. Set in 1930s England, it is a story of international intrigue, where planes flit by night to secret landing grounds, and lightless launches creep along low, desolate coastline.
