Just looked back down my posts, and I see I've put my books out of order. They go like this: Confusion of Murders (first); A Bewilderment of Crooks (second); and The Clutches of Death (third). Doesn't make much difference, I know, although a lot of people like to read books in a mystery series in the right sequence. As a matter of interest, Rock to Death is the sixth, but so far it's only available as a physical hardback from Robert Hale (and elsewhere on Amazon). A hardback large-print edition will soon be available from Ulverscroft (Thorpe).

Keep reading.

The Kindle edition of A Confusion of Murders has been reviewed on Amazon! Wow. Somebody who bought it and downloaded it actually enjoyed it, thoroughly - and the review is five star. I'm not surprised, of course, because like most authors I believe that what I write is pretty good. Well, no, actually very good. I'll stop there, because I can feel my deerstalker getting a bit tight. And you say, what crazy sort of a mystery writer is this who sits at his laptop with a Sherlock Holmes hat on? Well, the truth is, I don't. But I'm an author, and I write fiction. Why say I could feel my head swelling, when I could paint a better word picture in a more imaginative way. Imaginative as in completely untrue.

And, as you'll have gathered by now, I'm beginning to ramble. Time for bed, I think, where I'll read the James Bond book written by Jeffery Deaver, Carte Blanche. Or perhaps an Agatha Christie. Or...

Talk to you again soon...

Reading without Kindle

If you want to read my Jack Scott mysteries without buying a Kindle e-reader, there's another way.

Log on to Amazon, and download the free programme Kindle for PC. That enables you to read the books on a PC or laptop. Once you've bought the books (£1.14 each) they are archived, which means if accidents happen and they're lost you can always download them again, free.

Have fun.
