Adam Brookes Book and Novel

Adam Brookes - Author


As the BBC's China Correspondent, Adam Brookes received repeated visits from an anonymous man offering to sell him military secrets to pass to British Secret Services - a likely 'dangle' designed to entrap him. This event inspired the writing of Night Heron, a game-changing thriller ripped from today's headlines. Now correspondent for BBC News in Washington, D.C., Adam Brookes is deeply engrained in the world of government secrets, and has reported on assignment from many of the world's most dangerous countries, including Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and North Korea.
