Stanley will be in the US in September/October for all sorts of events to launch A Deadly Covenant. He’d love to see you at one of them! Join us for the launch at Once Upon a Crime in person or online. Michael will join from South Africa.

Stanley has a fascinating, genuine Bushman hunting kit, and since A Deadly Covenant links with the Bushman theme of Death of the Mantis, he’d like to show you some of these pieces at some of the events and discuss their uses.
