Kenneth Eade - Expressing Everyday Outrage in Thrillers

Before he started writing bestselling political thrillers, author Kenneth Eade practised law for 30 years.

Eade has been described as one of the strongest thriller writers on the scene, and we are happy to have him as our Author of the Day. In this interview, we chat about politics, how Eade's law experience shaped his books and why he loves to explore controversial topics.
