Advance copies!

I've now got my advance copies of The Case of the Diamond Shadow, and don't they look great! And in just over two weeks'time--on July 1--the books will be out in the shops. Wonderful!

Comic strip clues..

Included in The Case of the Diamond Shadow are some clues contained in comic strips. I decided to do these because I love comic strips and because these were also very common in popular magazines of the 1930's. The comic strips tell the beginning of the story of the adventures of Inspecteur Nocturne, crack detective from the Paris Surete(which is like the French version of Scotland Yard). I wrote the text, and my son teenage Bevis did the illustrations. They were heaps of fun to do!
