Apologies for not being as prolific this year as i should have been – viruses and all that. I did manage to publish my audiobook Murders of Old China with Audible this time last year; i managed to get my researched novella on WW2, Jewish refugees and Macao, Strangers on the Praia, out (available here and online bookstores – and bookstores if you’re in Hong Kong or China).

Also, a lot went on behind the scenes that will hopefully soon see the light of day.

I can tell you that book #2 in the Destination…. series, Destination Peking, is out early next year in Asia and everywhere by the spring (feel free to preorder) and my 2 hour true crime docudrama Peking Noir (with a full cast!) is on BBC Radio 3 on January 10th at 7.30pm (UK time) and afterwards at some point on the BBC Sounds app. So more old China coming at you from the getgo of 2021….
