The Trail of the Viking Finger is being reviewed in the East Anglian Daily Times, and already covered in local Suffolk weeklies (+ on line versions) for Bury St. Edmunds, Newmarket, and Haverhill.
Discussions under way for coverage in Yorkshire newspapers.
On a recent holiday I took with me a copy of Trail of the Viking Finger, which I had bought almost five months ago but had delayed reading. Once started I was entranced and had to be persuaded by my wife to put it down so we could enoy the holiday.
I finished it over three sunny days and confess to shedding a tear several times.
Knowing you for some years I could detect a good deal of your personal biograpical detaiil such as: Tyneside,Yorkshire, India and suffering your Viking fingers and the odd outburst of raging temper. Well done John, you exercised your mind and mine to good effect.
Best wishes, Ian Macintosh.
