…I’m pleased to announce that the next novel in the AJ Kirby stable has been announced as the crime-thriller When Elephants Walk Through the Gorbals. So hold on tight to those reins, I’m going to be working at a canter over the next few weeks getting everything ready along with the publishers, White House Publications.

ajk1It is scheduled for publication in both paperback at the start of May (by which time these Grand National puns will be neigh good). Over the next few weeks I’ll be whetting your appetites with some teasers from the book, some trailers, and some general gumph regarding the writing of it.

The book follows The Magpie Trap, Bully, Perfect World, Paint this town Red and Sharkways into print format (where they line-up alongside my three short story collections, The Art of Ventrilquism, Trickier and Treatier, and Mix Tape.) And for now, much of the scope of the novel will remain under wraps.

But for now, I’ll tell you this: the book’s aimed at all of those folk who loved the TV series Life on Mars, and the Rebus books by Ian Rankin. It features the same grizzled detective – Jim Hunter – who starred in my 2007 novel The Magpie Trap, only in this one, Hunter’s right at the start of his career in the force, waiting for the tape to rise so he can run hell for leather after the criminals in Glasgow’s seedy underworld.
