I have known Mark as long as I've known anyone in the book business just about and I could not be more thrilled to help him celebrate the publication of his new book! I noticed that he will be signing copies at the National Spy Museum...I'm not sure we can top that, but we can try!
Come by and meet him and take a look at Ministers of Fire.
Mark is an expert on spying, so if you don't come and get a book signed, he might just come looking for you! I have no control over these things. - Kelly Justice, owner of Fountain
