Former Baltimore Sun reporter and author of nine literary thrillers Dan Fesperman comes to the Ivy Bookshop Friday, September 7 at 7 p.m. to read from and sign his latest book, The Double Game.

In the book, Fesperman weaves a tale of spies and their secrets, fathers and sons, lovers and fate, duplicity and loyalty. The Double Game ingeniously taps the espionage classics of the Cold War to build a maze of intrigue.

“A spy novel about spy novels, calculated to deliver a maximum dose of fun for the genre fan…Breezing through The Double Game is like encountering 30 spy classics …Fesperman’s book is a triple, quadruple, quintuple game, thrilling and fun,” writes The Daily Beast.

Fesperman, who was for many years a foreign correspondent for the Baltimore Sun, almost always writes stories of international intrigue. His work as a writer has taken him to thirty countries and three war zones and his books have been inspired by his travels.

His many crime novels have received much acclaim. Lie in the Dark won the Crime Writers’ Association of Britain’s John Creasey Memorial Dagger Award for best first crime novel, The Small Boat of Great Sorrows won the Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Award for best thriller, and The Prisoner of Guantánamo won the Dashiell Hammett Award from the International Association of Crime Writers. He lives in Baltimore.
