Unfortunately, since I am currently receiving treatment for prostate cancer, I shall no longer taking part in the various events which had been planned to mark the publication of the fourth Frank Elder novel, Body & Soul, on April 19th, and these events have been cancelled.

I am hoping, however, to be at CrimeFest in Bristol on Friday, May 18th, and at the Edinburgh International Book Festival in August, date to be   confirmed.

I’m certainly planning to ‘get back in the saddle’ as soon as fatigue allows – late autumn? – there are plans afoot already to celebrate the publication of Body & Soul in paperback early in 2019. Watch this space!
