Book presentation with Philip Gwynne Jones


I’m very happy to share a link to the blog of my friend Philip Gwynne Jones, who gives an account of our joint book-presentation last Saturday at Laguna Libre in Cannaregio, Venice.

My opinion of his novel, The Venetian Game, can be found in my blurb for it: “A playful novel, recounted by a witty and engaging narrator … as Venetian as a painting by Bellini (or a glass of Bellini). Oh, and it’s also an unputdownable thriller” (although the publishers in their infinite wisdom reduced it on the cover to the last three words).

The idea of his 21st-century Honorary Consul and my 18th-century cicerone coming together in a Dr Who-style crime story is an intriguing one…
