Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

AU­THOR D.J. Kelly dropped into the Ger­rards Cross book­shop to talk about her new book, Buck­ing­hamshire Spies and Su­ber­sives.

The book tells of the county’s 600 year his­tory of sub­ver­sion, sedi­tion and es­pi­onage, and de­tails how Bucks has been home to count­less spies, se­cret agents, heretics, in­form­ers and plot­ters.

Re­view­ers have called the book in­for­ma­tive and re­veal­ing, as it higlights the county’s role in Bri­tish In­tel­li­gence through the years.

DJ - real name Denise Bed­dows - is based in the county and has a back­ground in in­ves­ti­ga­tion and in­tel­li­gance anl­y­sis.

She is a keen sup­porter of events such as the Chal­font St Giles and Jor­dans Lit­er­ary Fes­ti­val where she was among eight other au­thors who spoke at a writ­ers’ cafe and pop-up book shop.
