Okay, I'm bursting!

Thanks to our 'Kiwi Kousin' Wink, I've been lucky enough to read 'In The Dark' and all I can say is, I loved it. Dark, sinister and down right gritty from the start, it's a wonderful walk down another dark alley in the Guv's mind. Luckily though, he doesn't deviate too much off the beaten, blood soaked track.

I'm not going to let out any more because I expect it'll be available in Harro(w)gate and after that there will be plenty of time for people to have a chat about it. Until that time, I'll be biting the back of my hand waiting to see what you guys think of it.

I'm about half-way through and so far it's living up to all my (very high!) expectations.

These opportunities are, for me, few and far between, Keith. I hope yiou don't mind me taking this small one. The boot will, no doubt, be on the other foot many a time in the future. Wink

Oh yes it will be, Kevin  - I'm currently reading Mark's next book - that's the one he's not even written yet - it's actually still in his head but he revealed the secret at a signing once -
Mark, I am reading your next book using MIND CONFUSION, only it's not me, it's someone who looks like me (poor bugger!)

You guys are so slow. I've just finished reading this for a second time.

Although, I now think I'm in a minority again as I'm one of the few that doesn't have a signed copy.
