We'll start with the important news: all the tortoises have survived the winter and are merrily doing what tortoises do. "A Very Private Murder" (aka "AVPM") has survived the editing process, thanks to the wizardry of Louise and others at Allison & Busby, and is still on schedule for publication in July 2010. There's some topical, cutting edge policing in it, so I'm looking forward to its release before topical becomes historical. Remember: Charlie did it first, by about a year. There's nothing to report, I'm afraid, on book XIV. The hardest mysteries to write are the ones with just one murder, so it's looking like we may have to fall back on a serial killer.
