Before he became political editor of ITV News, Robert Peston’s career included stints as a journalist and presenter for the likes of ‘The Sunday Telegraph’ and the BBC. The author of multiple non-fiction books, he’s now turned his hand to fiction, although the theme doesn’t stray too far from what he knows. He talks to Georgina Godwin about his first novel ‘The Whistleblower’, a thriller centred around a lobby journalist at the time of the UK’s 1997 general election.
