Of all the things Harry Chase had imagined in his life, being a drummer on a cruise ship band was not one that would have occurred to him. And yet, there he was. Centre stage, behind a young female singer along with his mates, Dave, Tony and Steve.

Which meant that getting involved in a jewellery theft, an on-board massage parlour and the hunt for an Old Master was even further from his mind as he cracked the snare drum.

And yet, this was exactly how he found himself being questioned by Interpol …..

  1. When did you know that you wanted to be an author?

I have no specific recollection of wanting to be an author. I think it is something that has been in the back of my mind for many years, but for some reason only in the last three or four years have I actually decided to give it a go and put pen to paper so to speak.


  1. What inspired you to write this book?

My latest book was largely inspired by Peter Lovesey’s The False Inspector due and actually spending two weeks on a cruise around the Mediterranean in 2013.


  1. If you could sell this book in one sentence what would it be?

Someone once said that my books were like Agatha Christie but with more laughs.


  1. What are you up to next?

Currently looking at writing something for children based on my nine year old granddaughter.


  1. Who is your biggest inspiration?

I have no single biggest inspiration but I have many people who have inspired me in different ways.
