After much discussion with my editors, and booksellers, and taking into account all the feedback I’ve had from readers (thanks to everyone who mailed with suggestions and comments) the title for the third and final Leo Demidov novel will be AGENT 6. In Japan, they want to use AGENT 06, to connect with CHILD 44, the use of two numbers being important for symmetry.
So far, we’re looking at a summer 2011 release for the UK. And I’m going on a tour in Germany in the Autumn, in October, starting in Frankfurt. The US is currently looking at at January 2012 release date.
My fourth book, which will be something completely new, is now underway, which is very exciting. The feeling is similar to when is started on CHILD 44, finding my way with a new narrative style. All I can say at the moment is that it’s a thriller, and it’s not set in the Soviet Union.
