George Markstein (Estate)
Born in Berlin, George Markstein (1926-87) wrote some of the most authentic and compelling espionage thrillers of the 1970s and 80s. And, in Tara Kane, created an enduring historical saga set in the days of the Klondike Gold Rush. George’s novels have been translated in to Danish, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish amongst others.
George Markstein worked as a crime reporter and a military correspondent with the US Army during the Cold War. From then on he was hooked on the study of espionage. He worked in television, creating The Prisoner, before writing for Callan and Armchair Theatre.
