Yes, I know what I said …

… no more novels after the last, Darkness, Darkness, the final book in the Resnick series that was published in 2014, and certainly nothing more involving retired police detective Frank Elder, who last saw the light of day way back in 2006 in Darkness and Light [bit of a theme going on there] but it seems as if Frank’s retirement is pretty much as water tight as mine, and I’m truly delighted to be able to say the manuscript of a new Elder novel, the fourth, has been delivered and happily accepted, the deal has been done and William Heinemann will publish the new Elder novel, Body & Soul, in April, 2018.

  1. Thanks for all the pleasure you have given me. 80 next month and looking forward to the new Elder novel John. Congrats on your retirement …. errr, what now? Maybe a little Jazz? Brian

  2. Many congratulations John…I have forwarded this good news to a few aficionados…or whatever they are called in Cornwall. Enjoy the rest of the summer. Harry

  3. Thanks to all of you for your positive messages. I hope the finished product doesn’t disappoint!
