New Cover Revealed
‘England’s Finest’ is out in October, and I know this is still a rough and I probably shouldn’t be showing it yet but I’m so excited and love it so much. Once again showing the flagrant disregard for geographical accuracy that has been with us from ‘Strange Tide’ onwards, ‘England’s Finest’ offers a wonky view of Covent Garden, wherein the tube station has now magically aligned itself with the side of the Garden’s canopy, but think of this like those Superman comic covers that never quite told the truth.
It’s the scene of the first missing case in the book, ‘The Seventh Reindeer’, about an attack on an opera singer, and is based on a true story told to me by friends. There are twelve such investigations and the book is introduced by poor Raymond Land, as mystified as ever. I love the wealth of detail in the picture and Mr Bryant’s callous disregard for the corpse.
