“My 38-year old suspense novel, The Damascus Cover,” says Howard Kaplan, ” has just been filmed in a British production starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Sir John Hurt, Jurgen Prochnow and Olivia Thirlby. I began my suspense writing career soon after my arrest by the KGB in the USSR, where I was involved in smuggling manuscripts to the West.”
