Former Home Office employee Neil Robinson’s spy thriller THE OTHER SIDE OF TRUST has gone to Burning Chair Publishers for World English Rights.

When the three leaders of an opposition group to Iran’s Islamic regime are all murdered within 48 hours of each other in Cambridge, Hamburg, and New York, an MI6 agent is sent to Tehran but finds his instincts rebelling against the evidence in the deadliest mission of his life.

Robinson now works for Lord’s Cricket Ground where he has remained for the last 15 years currently as the MCC’s Head of Heritage & Collections, where, among other things, his job involves looking after the Ashes Urn.

He has written widely about cricket and sporting heritage for a variety of publications and in 2015 published Long Shot Summer, a book about one of the most humiliating years in English cricket history. His fiction writing covers very different ground. A lifelong lover of spy novels, he takes inspiration from thriller writers like Len Deighton and John Buchan and seeks to create novels with a sense of place and character.

Burning Chair recently published former spy John Fullerton’s successful spy novel series.
