Restless: TV tie-in

It is 1939. Eva Delectorskaya is a beautiful 28-year-old Russian emigree living in Paris. As war breaks out she is recruited for the British Secret Service by Lucas Romer, a mysterious Englishman, and under his tutelage she learns to become the perfect spy, to mask her emotions and trust no one, including those she loves most. Since the war, Eva has carefully rebuilt her life as a typically English wife and mother. But once a spy, always a spy. Now she must complete one final assignment, and this time Eva can't do it alone: she needs her daughter's help. "'Boyd is English fiction's master storyteller ... Restless is that rare thing: a spy thriller from a first-rate narrative intelligence'"- Independent on Sunday"'Fast moving, densely plotted, beautifully observed and probably one of the best things Boyd has done'"- Esquire"'A good, rollicking read ... pulls you deep in to the obscure, forgotten intricacies of wartime espionage ... will keep you turning pages until the end'"- Observer"'Heart-stoppingly exciting ... a riveting tale of wartime derring-do'"- Time Out

Boyd, William

▪ American actor
born June 5, 1898, Hendrysburg, Ohio, U.S.
died Sept. 12, 1972, Hollywood
 American motion-picture and television actor who was best known for his portrayal of Hopalong Cassidy in a series of western films.

      Although born in Ohio, he grew up (from the age of 7) in Oklahoma and attended school only until he was 13. Thereafter, he held many odd jobs until, at the age of 20, he set out for California. Boyd began his film career in 1918 with a role in Cecil B. deMille's Old Wives for New, and he appeared throughout the 1920s in films made by deMille. He first played the role of the cowboy hero in 1935 in the film Hopalong Cassidy. With his tall stature and white hair, Boyd was a distinctive figure; wearing a black hat and costume and riding a white horse, he quickly became identified by the public with the screen hero. He played the role in subsequent films until the late 1940s and then reenacted it for a television series, also called Hopalong Cassidy (1952–54).
