Jeremy Duns is a British author. His spy fiction features an MI6 agent called Paul Dark, and is set during the Cold War.
Duns studied at St Catherine’s College, Oxford, after which he worked for several years as a journalist at Brussels-based magazine The Bulletin. In Britain, he has written for The Sunday Times, The Daily Telegraph and The Independent newspapers. He is an admirer of Ian Fleming and James Bond, and has unearthed pages of a lost Bond novel, Per Fine Ounce, early screenplays for Casino Royale and The Diamond Smugglers’, and researched a wartime MI6 operation that inspired the opening of the film Goldfinger.
Duns’s novels are influenced by Fleming, Len Deighton and John le Carré; his debut novel, Free Agent (2009), was one of The Daily Telegraph’s “Thrillers of the year” in 2009.
Born in Manchester, he now resides in the Åland Islands.
