It’s almost twenty years since I first flew off to Rome to start work on what’s turned out to be the longest-running series of my career, the Nic Costa books.
Now they’re getting a new lease of life in some sparkling editions for the first two books, A Season for the Dead and The Villa of Mysteries from Black Thorn which appear in January.
And what better place to launch them than Rome itself? You’ll find me talking and signing there at the Anglo American Book Store, 6pm, Wednesday January 22. It’s a casual event — no booking needed. Just turn up at Via della Vite, 102, near the Spanish Steps.
It’s a real pleasure to be returning to Anglo American too. When I moved to Rome to research the first Costa book I lived not far away — and used the book store as my go-to place for all the reference works I so badly needed at the time. It’s wonderful such a great book shop is still around and continuing to serve the English language reader in Rome.
The talk will be in English by the way but everyone’s welcome. Hope I can see some of you in the Eternal City in January.
