'A remarkable act of imagination and filial homage' William Boyd, New Statesman

In November 1944, Sub Lt Bob Clark, a twenty-year old agent with Britain's top-secret Special Operations Executive, parachuted into northern Italy.

He left behind the girl he had fallen in love with, Marjorie, his radio operator. Captured by the enemy, Bob's fate hung in the balance and Marjorie wouldn't know for six months whether he was alive or dead...

Monopoli Blues recounts the story of Tim Clark's journey to uncover the story of his parents' war - and the truth behind the betrayal of his father's Clarion mission to the Nazis.


AUTHOR: Tim Clark spent a large part of his career working as a lawyer at one of the world's leading firms specialising in mergers and acquisitions and corporate work in the UK and internationally, ultimately becoming Senior Partner. Since retiring as a lawyer, Tim has taken on board positions in a number of corporate, arts and charitable organisations, and senior advisory roles at a number of international think tanks. He lives in London with his wife, close to their two sons.
