My Next Book

Back in 2015, the Malta Tourism Authority invited me (and two of my author friends) to their wonderful country in order to thank me for mentioning Malta in several of my books. Not only did they fly us to the Mediterranean and roll out the red carpet, but we were given private access to several of their most important documents and historical sites. Needless to say, we were blown away by their hospitality and have viewed Malta as our home away from home since that once-in-a-lifetime trip.

As a token of our appreciation, each of us set a small portion of his next book in Malta (
The Prisoner’s Gold for me; The Pharaoh’s Secret for Graham Brown; and The Emperor’s Revenge for Boyd Morrison). Meanwhile, we privately argued over which of us would get to write an entire novel about this amazing place. I ultimately won the honor by defeating my brethren in a Maltese pay-per-view, no-holds-barred, steel-cage wrestling match, and have been quietly working on the book (and nursing my injuries) ever since.

Although I recently finished writing the book (woohoo!), I’m not quite ready to announce a title or a release date. However, I can confirm that it features
Payne & Jones, who have been waiting to get back into action since their appearance in Before the Storm. Like many of you, I missed those guys, and I’m confident you’ll enjoy their latest adventure. It's one of their best ones yet.

If I had to guess, I’d say that the book will be released in late 2018, but until I have official confirmation, that’s only speculation on my part. As soon as I know for sure, I’ll post the details on the
NEWS section of my website and on social media. In the meantime, I appreciate your patience and continued support.
