Eric Ambler’s autobiography won him the Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best Critical/Biographical Work.

Only an idiot believes that he can write the truth about himself...

Here Lies is an insightful look inside the life and work of one of our greatest thriller writers. In this Edgar Award winning autobiography, Ambler applies his deft touch to his own story: his South London childhood, his brief engineering career, his time as an advertising copywriter, and, of course, the publication of his revolutionary spy novels. He then explores his time at war, his service in the film division of the British War Office, and his resulting screenplays.

Here Ambler presents a compelling account of a life as enigmatic as it was exceptional.

Here Lies was originally published in 1985.


‘A deftly written portrait of a colourful career.’ – The Toronto Star
