Cédric Bannel


Following in the footsteps of the great masters of the Anglo-Saxon and French spy novels, Cédric Bannel opens a door on the backstage of international intelligence. His well-documented police investigations feature the Kabul police force, described from the inside, and the DGSE, of which he is a fine connoisseur. Unique in the quality of their characters and the precision of their information, L’Homme de Kaboul, Baad (Points readers’ best detective novel award 2017) and Kabul Express shed a fascinating light on the issues at stake in a world where the great balances rest on the soldiers of the shadows.L’Espion français (The French Spy), his latest novel, was published on 1 July 2021 by Éditions Robert Laffont in co-publication with Éditions Les Tourelles.
