On Saturday 5th of September I'll be in conversation with author Tom Harper at Borderlines Book Festival in Carlisle. We'll be talking conspiracy thrillers, writing and all sorts. His new book Black River is out the same day as my new one, Solomon Creed - so it might turn into a literary deathmatch type of situation. Come along and see the bloodbath. I'll…

So - you may have noticed that I have a new book coming out very soon. It's my first new book for almost two years and I'm quite nervous about it. It's getting great early reviews, the best of my career actually, and lots of awesome authors have said really nice things about it, but I'm still chewi…

Australian readers, Solomon is heading your way next week. Brace yourselves...
A plane crash in the Arizona desert. An explosion that sets the world on fire. A damning pact to hide an appalling secret. And one man bound to expose the truth. He is Solomon Creed. No one knows what he is capable of. Not even him. When Solomon Creed flees the burning wreckage of a plane in the Arizona desert, seconds before an explosion sets the world alight, he is acting on instinct alone. He has no memory of his past, and no idea what his future holds. Running towards a nearby town, one name fires in his mind - James Coronado. Somehow, Solomon knows he must save this man. But how do you save a man who is already dead? Read more: View link

Just popped in to chat to Radio 6 Music about Libraries and Tom Waits (as you do) and found the ten of spades waiting for me by the mic. What does it mean do you think? Is Pudsey actually an Iraqi general on the run?

This is incredible. Parkour in 1930s baggy trousers and brogues.

Just watched the new Cinderella movie. Such a great story I'm kind of glad they didn't monkey around with it too much. Also struck by how much Richard Madden looks like a young James Mason in it, though he was in colour and I got anxious at the wedding scene.
