letters from readers #2

If rumour has it right, I worked at your old desk in Chinatown if it was housed in the building just inside the gates on the left side, with train tracks running through the building. I articled in a small criminal defence firm (Cobb St. Pierre) and the story told was that the desk was too large to move, so there it sat - William Deverell’s old desk!

I thought you should know I tried to take it with me when I left the firm, but was unsuccessful. I’ve been practicing family law (which I love) since 2008 and working on a few books for the same length of time - crime fiction - is the genre, but none of it is a patch on your work. We shall see where it goes.

I just wanted to write to you and let you know that my daughters bought your book for me on Mother’s Day and I cannot put it down. They know I am a devoted reader.

I am awestruck. Just wanted to write that and thank you for another Arthur “Beech-am” novel. We love Arthur and Margaret and now Ulysses. Thank you!

Best Regards,


Family Law
