A Hot Date For Bryant & May
I’m pleased to say that I now have a June 24th hardback publication date for ‘Bryant & May Off The Rails’, my eighth novel featuring the elderly irascible London detectives, and advanced copies have already started receiving ‘best ever’-type reviews!
But this could be the last in the present series. Although I have several more Bryant & May adventures prepared, the pair will only be back if one of four things happens;
a/ If ‘Off The Rails’ sells well.
b/ If they get made into a TV series.
c/ If demand for smartarse stories not necessarily aimed at the youth market picks up.
d/ If you like the books enough for me to drive a word-of-mouth campaign.
Tough times call for tough measures. The book’s not out yet, though, so we’ll see what happens. Also, the Crime Writers’ Association is producing a compendium of new short stories, and commissioned me for an original Bryant & May story, entitled ‘Bryant & May In The Soup’. More details when I get them.
