My new novel, 'Relapse', is all but ready. Line editing has gone more smoothly than it usually does (assisted, no doubt, by the fact that it is the Easter holiday and I don't have schoolwork to interfere). It goes to Cuzzie this morning so that she can cast her eagle eye over it and, hopefully, pronounce it fit for publication. If all goes well - and it should - it should be on sale by the end of next week.
'Relapse' is the third 'Rutter' book. It is set five months after the events depicted in 'Rutter's Reunion' and begins on the very day that Kevin Mallory is sentenced for his crimes. Dr. Alex Lawson has now moved in with Rutter. She and the newly-promoted Sergeant Cornish receive a cryptic letter on what is a very significant day, for more than one historical reason. That letter plunges the three of them into a new, and unexpected nightmare scenario.
While Cuzzie proofreads the manuscript, I will make a start on 'Larussi's Heartsong', the appendix to 'A Queen's Heart'
