Gabriel Allon is coming to the screen!

After years of fielding offers, I am excited to be working with the talented team at MGM television, led by Gary Barber, the home of James Bond, Fargo and The Handmaid’s Tale. I always said I would wait for the right time and the right partner, and I couldn’t be more pleased for that time to finally have come.

To learn more, you can read the piece in Variety found here. As usual, my newsletter subscribers and social media followers will be the first to know of any new developments (including casting decisions!) so I encourage you to follow and subscribe if you haven’t already.

2015 Tour Announced!

It is my pleasure to announce the dates and locations for my tour in support of The English Spy. As always, I’ve tried to accommodate as many of your requests as possible. You can view the whole schedule and find out more about each event by visiting my tour page found here.


CBS This Morning

Day two of my 2014 tour began at CBS This Morning, where I had a wonderful time talking about The Heist and some real life art theft. Full video is now available here:


Morning Joe — The Heist

Day three of my tour began with MSNBC’s Morning Joe. We had a good time talking about my author photo, then turned to the more serious topics of the Syrian civil war, the Arab Spring, and the mechanics of real-life art theft. Watch all the way to the end to find out what kind of art Joe Scarborough has up on his walls at home.
