Thriller writers I read

Desmond Bagley wrote in the traditional British thriller style. His books still make good reads.

Desmond Bagley
was born at Kendal, Cumbria (then Westmorland), England, October 29, 1923. During the war, he was employed in an aircraft factory, then in 1947 left for Africa, working his way across the Sahara Desert, and contracting malaria in Uganda. By 1951, he had settled in South Africa, becoming a freelance writer for local newspapers and magazines.
The success of his first novel, The Golden Keel, launched his career into full-time novel writing. He published a total of sixteen thrillers, all craftsmanlike and nearly all best-sellers, of which only one was made into a film during his lifetime.
Bagley and his wife left South Africa for Italy in 1960, and then to England in 1965, finally settling in Guernsey on the Channel Islands until his death in 1983. He was only fifty-nine years old. When not travelling to research the exotic backgrounds for his novels, Bagley spent his time sailing and motor-boating. His last two novels Night of Error and Juggernaut were published posthumously. His works have been translated into over 20 languages.

Dates are for first UK hardcover publication; all of Bagley's novels subsequently appeared in paperback.
