Hello, and a very warm welcome to The Debrief. This is a companion to my official site, and I plan to use it in a different way. It won't be a traditional blog, but more of a repository for pieces of journalism and research lurking on my hard drive (a few of which are far from brief, so the name seems doubly appropriate), as well as occasional notes and behind-the-scenes info on my spy novels. That's the idea, anyway - it may well change as I go along. I'll probably also link to items here via Facebook and Twitter.
