Simon Says: communiqué 029/March 2019

Hello everyone

I’ve just got new glasses, so I’m seeing the world afresh… Well, if not afresh, I’m certainly seeing my screen more clearly.

It’s interesting to look through “fresh eyes” and recently, I’ve been looking at some of my old books and the locations behind the those books. Let me remind you about Tattoo Your Name on My Heart.

Tattoo Your Name on My Heart

From the Back Cover…

Although past his mid-thirties, the teenager that lives inside Boniface’s head can’t believe his luck when he is hired to help one of his rock idols, Danny Featherstone, and his ex-glamour-model wife, Dawn.

Danny and Dawn are the target of an anonymous internet hate campaign that has led to poor ticket sales and lost television work. Broken contractual terms brought to light by the hate campaign have led the management to freeze the band’s assets, cutting off the couple’s source of income.

And then Dawn disappears.

Boniface searches for Dawn but uncovers small-time crooks looking for money and excitement who think Boniface has something they can extort. Making his search even more complicated is an angry son looking to destroy the parent he believes abandoned him, and embittered, poverty-stricken musicians trying to regain their former fame and get a slice of the income that was only ever theirs in their dreams.

But most worrying, Boniface finds a husband who loves his wife, unconditionally, and who will do anything to protect her.

Tattoo Your Name on My Heart is also available as part of the Boniface Box Set: three gripping novels for one low price.

Surrey Hills

In Tattoo Your Name on My Heart Boniface finds himself the Surrey Hills.

As well as offering archetypal gentle rolling English hills, the Surrey Hills also have historical interest for crime writing aficionados—Newlands Corner (within the Hills) is the place from which Agatha Christie staged her disappearance.

Take a look at the Surrey Hills.

Albury Old Church

Some of the key scenes in Tattoo Your Name on My Heart are set in the old church at Albury (in the Surrey Hills).

Parts of the church dates back to Saxon times, but the architecture and decoration is stunning. Just take a look.

And to Close

Enjoy looking at the photos. I’ll be back in April.

All the best
