I have a number of talks in my diary. Since INJURED PARTIES was published in May a variety of organisations have invited me to speak to their groups about how I came to write the book, and give some insight about my research methods.
Writing and researching the story over a period of seven years was just the start!
As soon I finish the hour-long presentation and questions are asked by members of the audience, and memories of fifty years ago have been tweaked, it’s amazing how many new facts emerge.
No matter how thorough the delving into archives and searching for characters involved in the story all those years ago, there is still more to be discovered.
I noticed a comment from a reviewer on Amazon. He wrote:
I much enjoyed reading this book and trying to best guess the murderer without success! There are a lot of characters and suspects and I found the repetition useful to avoid losing track.
This was a monumental achievement to put this together without recourse to the police records and relying on the accounts of many of those that Monica interviewed some of whom may not have had very reliable memories.
Of particular interest to me was the contribution of a key witness whom I remember as a senior colleague in the early days of my career.
A key witness! Now that’s really fascinating. I hope the gent who wrote this will contact me via my blog and reveal more about the key witness.
