The Late Train to Gipsy Hill is a fast paced, elegant and warm-hearted debut thriller from award-winning writer and former Home Secretary, Alan Johnson.
Gary Nelson has a pretty uneventful life, even if he does live in London. That life gets turned on its head when, on his commute home, he has a chance encounter with Arina, a young waitress who he has noticed on the train each day but never spoken to. There is so much more to Arina than meets the eye, and when Gary does finally speak to her it sparks a chain of events that leads to him finding himself on the run from Russian secret agents, mobsters and even the Metropolitan Police. The Late Train to Gipsy Hill is a masterful thriller and the start of an exciting new direction for this highly respected writer and former politician.
