Egyptians & Axe-Murderers....

As "The Djinn" is now in the final stages of mastering, I have begun initial preparations for Craig Saunder's rather bizarre, dark-humoured, and ultimately very funny "Spiggot", published by Grand Mal Press.

The book follows two, well one, rather hapless copper and his sharper female partner, as he gets dragged through the ultimate police nightmare: getting caught inside the body of a serial axe-murderer, named Harold. 

It is very difficult to describe where the book sits in relation to the others I have done this year, but equating it to some TV series, I would say that it has the working-class coal-face vibe of "Auf Weidersehen, Pet", the street-wise bitterness of "The Sweeney" and a healthy dose of foul language and arse jokes that would not be lost in an episode of "The Young Ones". 

I still haven't the slightest idea of where I am going to go with this one, but it is bound to be a laugh. 

Expect it to be released by the end of the year.
