David Morris took this unusual picture last month when I was presenting a talk on my books in Chelmsford Central Library as part of the Chelmsford Ideas Festival. The talk was entitled Real Life Criminal Justice in the 19th Century, and consisted of a canter through Hatch, Smethurst and Murder in the Red Barn.
People ask me why all of my books are about criminal investigations. There was no plan; like Topsy, it just growed, but I am not planning another one of these any time soon...
