Tim Tate awarded Eric Ambler award

Congratulations to Tim Tate who has been awarded the Eric Ambler Award, in memory of the spy thriller writer.

“I’m deeply honoured to receive the Eric Ambler Award. The grant will greatly assist with the cost of researching my new non-fiction book on one of the most important, yet least understood, spies of the Cold War. Uncovering this previously-hidden story involves extensive work in archives throughout Europe and the United States; the award is a huge help in funding this research. I am profoundly grateful for this support.”
