Anthony Price – complete identify Alan Anthony fee – wrote twenty books from 1970 to 1990. Nineteen of these have been undercover agent novels (the 20th, The Eyes of the Fleet: a favored historical past of Frigates and Frigate Captains, a non-fiction identify released in 1990, was once his ultimate paintings – not less than, thus far; expense remains to be with us), which, jointly, shape the most effective espionage sequence ever penned via a unmarried writer, a brilliantly sustained, splendidly interconnected, richly historic fictional – but completely believable – universe starring operatives of a department of Britain's Intelligence prone (later pointed out because the examine and improvement Section).
Though written within the 3rd individual, each one tale is informed from the point of view of 1 of a rotating solid of intelligence varieties.

The overdue H. R. F. Keating positioned it such a lot appositely (and pithily) in a blurb reproduced at the again covers of a few of the later versions of Price's books: "If think's your factor, here's richness in plot, discussion, implications."
A Crime Writers' organization Silver and Gold Dagger Award winner, rate is very neglected nowadays, that is striking when you think about how fabulous his tales are. There's scant information regarding him on-line; he has a Wikipedia entry – even supposing the dates within the bibliography are misguided, in all probability simply because they take the yankee ebook dates instead of the unique British ones; see under for a extra actual bibliography – and there are one or strong articles at the subject matters and chronology of his undercover agent sequence (which levels from 1944 to 1988); this one via Jo Walton and this one by way of David Dyer-Bennet (with its attendant booknotes) are the easiest of the bunch. however the unusual person evaluate apart, that's approximately it.
