A message from the author:

Dear readers, as you see this book was published, according to plan, on 20 March 2020 - just as the restrictions necessitated by Covid-19 were being put in place. Book fairs were cancelled, bookshops closed, and my two launches - April in the UK, May in France - couldn't happen. So I need your help to rescue this story from being Lost in Lockdown! In the current circumstances, the three Rs - read, review and recommend - are even more vital than ever. Thank you!
