Who is Patrick Brigham?
As the Editor in Chief of the Sofia Western News English language magazine, between 1995 and 2000 - and as a journalist - he witnessed the changes in this once hard core Communist Country and personally knew most of the political players, including the old Communist Dictator Todor Zhivkov and his successors Zhelev and Stoyanov.
Traditionally a hotbed of intrigue and the natural home of the conspiracy theory, Bulgaria proved to be quite a challenge and for many people the transition was painful. Despite this, he personally managed to survive these changes and now lives peacefully in Northern Greece.
A writer and journalist for many years, he has written a number of short stories and articles which might be better described as light hearted, whilst confirming that the truth is often stranger than fiction.
Patrick's next book titled An Angel over Rimini is also a police mystery, involving the fictional Detective Chief Inspector Michael Lambert, who now works for Europol the EU police organisation. This time he is searching for a little English girl who has recently been abducted on holiday in Italy. In the story he relives his late fathers life in Italy as an RAF pilot during World War II, and consequently discovers that he has a secret half brother.
