It will not have escaped the notice of regular readers that I have a new book coming out soon – The Vanishing Lord – the next instalment of the PorterGirl series. There is great expectation of authors to promote themselves and their work, particularly in the run up to a new release. Quite frankly, there’s only so many times one can say ‘buy my book’ before starting to sound desperate, so I thought what better way to promote my writing by actually… er… writing?
Following the success of Never A Cross Word, it seemed only right and proper to return once more to Agatha Christie’s most famous and arguably best-loved characters, Hercule Poirot and Captain Arthur Hastings for another rip-roaring investigation, carried out with tongue firmly in cheek. In the interest of continuity, the tale does have tenuous links to PorterGirl and Old College, so it isn’t entirely gratuitous.
Join me tomorrow in welcoming back our favourite Belgian detective (and his magnificent moustache) in a story of intrigue and mild peril – Hide & Seek !
