As I mentioned in my last post, I am completely caught up in the Gus Dury novels of Tony Black - hardboiled Scottish detective novels set in Edinburgh with gritty characters and punchy dialogue.
I dropped old Tone a line, a bit cheeky, telling him how his readership included none other than Grandma Whacker (who quite frankly at her age should be reading The Lady and, maybe for a bit of excitement, The Radio Times).
Well, look back at the penultimate comment on my last post - the author himself commented! How very nice of him. So impressed he did that.
Here is Mr Black, talking about the latest Gus Dury novel.
Mmmmm, he's a bit of a dish, isn't he? And that accent! But I am not going to push my luck. No more cheeky comments. Otherwise I might get a visit from a couple of heavies...
