Adrian Magson's Debut Spy Thriller Optioned for Film

Red Station by Adrian Magson

The 2010 spy thriller Red Station by Adrian Magson, which introduces MI5 officer Harry Tate, has been optioned for film. A search for a screenwriter is currently underway by the studio.

In the book, having been made the scapegoat for a botched drugs intercept operation, Tate is dispatched to "Red Station", a remote outpost in the Balkans, ostensibly to avoid press scrutiny, but where in effect the security services send "problem" agents they’d like to be rid of. But the outpost is thrust into the international spotlight when troops begin massing in the area; and, as the situation becomes increasingly dangerous, Tate discovers the real, truly shocking, purpose behind "Red Station" — and decides to fight back …

The second book in the series, Tracers, was published earlier this year. The producers are no doubt considering a franchise here.
