I was very much hoping to finish the new William Quest novel by Christmas, but it will now be out in the Spring. The new book is set in York and Quest finds himself playing the role of detective as he struggles to solve a mystery.
It’s been interesting taking Quest away from London into a city he doesn’t know at all, and where he has to seek out new allies. We’ve very much enjoyed prowling the alleys, ginnels and snickets of our finest medieval city in search of new locations. It’s interesting that while the Romans, Vikings and medieval folk get lots of publicity in York, its Victorian period seems to get neglected.
In fact, Victorian York wasn’t altogether a peaceful place. It had its own underworld and rookeries. There was menace… there was danger.
William Quest finds himself in York start just a week after the dramatic conclusion related in his last adventure Deadly Quest. William has scarcely recovered from the events on Jacob’s Island. And now he’s plunged into a new and baffling mystery.
Not to mention someone wanting him dead!
So sorry for the delay, but Quest is on his way.
And deadlier than ever.
If you’ve enjoyed the first two William Quest adventures, please do leave a review on Amazon.
