Deighton’s books about spy Bernard Samson have sold more than 40 million copies as the former MI6 agent is drawn back into duty to uncover the truth behind his wife’s defection to the Russian KGB.

Clerkenwell is now developing an 18-part drama series based on Deighton’s books, with Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog Millionaire) leading the project.
