BBC Radio interview

A lovely, fun interview by BBC Radio Northampton's John Griff in connection with their Book Club Book of the Month, 'Death on the Marais'.

In the studio is the charming Ahlam Yussef, of Northants Libraries, who is one of the volunteers (!) charged with reading and talking about the book each month.

You can listen to the entire interview here (go to about 1hr 16mins on the slider at the bottom for the beginning intro), which is available for the next 6 days.

John Griff was his usual engaging, supportive and witty self, and conducted a terrific interview with great humour and obvious interest in his subjects.

If you like the sound of  'Death on the Marais', it's available in hardback, paperback, audio and ebook. It might also be in your local library. If it's not - ask them to get a copy!

'Death on the Marais' - the first Inspector Lucas Rocco novel (there are now 4).


She was going to die. She could feel it, her life ebbing away as surely as fine sand through fingers.
France, 1963. It’s a time of great change, not least for Inspector Lucas Rocco. As part of a nationwide ‘initiative’ to broaden police operations, he finds himself moved from the Paris metropolis to a small village. His new patch might be rural, but it’s certainly not uneventful: on his first day, he finds a murdered woman wearing a Gestapo uniform lying in a British military cemetery. When the body is removed by order of a magistrate from the police mortuary before Rocco can finish his investigation, he realises he’s up against a formidable enemy. An enemy who will go to any lengths – even murder – to stop his investigation.
