Michael and Stanley will be in the US in September/October for all sorts of events to launch A Deadly Covenant. We’d love to see you at one of them! If you’re in Minneapolis for Bouchercon, meet us there. And come to the launch at Once Upon a Crime.
Stanley has a fascinating, genuine Bushman hunting kit, and since A Deadly Covenant links with the Bushman theme of Death of the Mantis, we’d like to show you some of these pieces at some of the events and discuss their uses.
