"Agatha Christie for people who inhale."
Nigel Williamson, The Times
Hello again, welcome back and... for first time callers... you'll be welcomed back on your next visit.
I'm happy to say the new book, Down on Cyprus Avenue (Dufour Editions) is due in your stores in the USA very shortly and I'm nipping over there to attend Noir Com and Bouchercon. I'm also doing a few book store events. As you'll see in the News section I'm meeting up with John Connolly and Stuart Neville (separately) along the way, really looking forward to that and all the other stores too! And before that I'm taking part in Words & Music at the Spiegel Tent in Wexford (full details in NEWS) as part of the Wexford Festival with Eoin Colfer, Jackie Hayden and hosted by Peter Murphy—I've a feeling this one is sure to overrun!
There's a new blog just posted which gives quite a bit of background to Down on Cyprus Avenue. Talking of which the brilliant photo on the front of the jacket was taken late one night down on Cyprus Avenue by David Torrans, one of my favourite photographers and also the owner of the fab No Alibis Bookstore in Belfast.
So I'll leave you to wander around the site for a while and get back to doing a bit more work on St. Ernan's Blues, the third Inspector Starrett Mystery.
Cheers until the next time.
Thanks a million to Catherine McGinley for the use of the PC photos.
