The brash, in-you-face reputation of foreign correspondents does not fit Roland Simmons. His rather unassuming demeanor obscures the fact that Roland secures more than his fair share of scoops. His competitors don’t have a clue how this mild-mannered Times of London reporter is so well connected with influential politicians and captains of industry, and Roland guards his professional secrets well. Few of his fellow correspondents even know Roland has covered hot wars first-hand such as the Gran Chaco in Latin America or the Italian invasion of Abyssinia. No matter how he manages to pull it off, Roland always seems to be in the right place at the right time.
