Event description

Join Sulari Gentill in-conversation with Tim Ayliffe discussing his recently published John Bailey thriller, Killer Traitor Spy. From Canberra to Moscow to Beijing, Killer Traitor Spy uncovers the new lines of espionage in the twenty-first century.

"John Bailey has spent decades risking his life to break news stories. Along the way he’s made some interesting friends, including Ronnie — who saved his life in Iraq — and Scarlett Merriman, whose night with Lebedev left her in a coma. And now they both need Bailey’s help. While Bailey investigates what happened to Scarlett, Ronnie Johnson is calling in an old debt. Because the same people going after Lebedev have framed Ronnie for murder." 

Tim Ayliffe often says that everything in his John Bailey thriller novels either "has happened, will happen, or could happen." According to the head of the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO), "there are more foreign spies or their proxies operating in Australia than at the height of the Cold War." In Killer Traitor Spy, Ayliffe has written a nail-biting thriller that delves into the world of Russian espionage.

Copies of the book will be available for sale and signing by the author, with thanks to The Yass Book Store.
