A Dead Man in Trieste

A Dead Man in Trieste

by Michael Pearce

CD-Audio Publication Date: 13/09/2016

 
Trieste in the 1900s is one of the greatest seaports in the world, the Austrian Empire's main outlet to the Mediterranean.

But various nationalist movements are threatening to pull the place apart. The militarist regime has trouble keeping a lid on it, the secret police are everywhere, and now the British consul has gone walkabout.

It will take someone from Special Branch to look into it, someone capable of speaking the relevant languages. Only one man fits the bill - Seymour, an officer from an East End immigrant background. Capable, hardworking, but ... not entirely British.

Michael Pearce

Michael Pearce was raised in Anglo-Egyptian Sudan, where his fascination for language began.

He later trained as a Russian interpreter but moved away from languages to follow an academic career, first as a lecturer in English and the History of Ideas, and then as an administrator.

He has a strong interest in human rights and in languages, both of which feature indirectly in his new series. Michael Pearce now lives in South-West London.
