You should see the back seat of the car . . .

Over at Criminal Minds this week we're talking about what our detectives carry in their handbags (or man-bags, as the case may be). 

Dandy Gilver travels light.  Her creator . . . not so much really.

Naked Emperors

This week's question on Criminal Minds is "what classic book do you think isn't as good as its reputation suggests?"  (Dead authors only, in case we meet in a lift at a convention).  My choice is by this writer.

If I hear a knock at the door I'll know who's come for me.

Dandy No.8 slips down the causeway

McRobertses, McPhersonses. Honorary McPhersonses, Queensferry High School survivors and friends old and new, on parade at the launch of DANDY GILVER AND A DEADLY MEASURE OF BRIMSTONE last night.  More pics over at Criminal Minds today.  

With Colin, Brian, Bogusia and Nan McRoberts.

With Gordon Dalyell, Stuart McCormack, Tommy Morrison  and Kathryn with a K (photo by May McCormack (well-swerved, May))

Louise Kelly, Catherine Lepreux and Wendy Keegan - between them they''ve provided a lot of craft items, flowers and  character names.

With Wendy Bellars (she chose the pose, honest), the headmistress of the school that inspired A BOTHERSOME NUMBER OF CORPSES.

With Elaine walker and Mig Shaw, who've known Neil even longer than I have.

Thanks for coming, everyone!
