Murder In The Village: Is the new title for the 'When The Clouds Have Passed' book. It also has a new cover, so too 'Thunder In A Bottle'.
'Murder In The Village' has a photo taken on the village boundary perhaps 5 or 6 years ago now for the cover. Although the picture shows local vandalism, it also shows a sense of humour, and as a crime writer, it tickled me, too.
'Thunder In A Bottle' now actually has a bottle on the new cover, a milk bottle from our now long-gone dairy at Upton Crossroads. It was owned by (Bob) R.G. Arnold, and had old-fashioned petrol pumps in the forecourt with pictures of cows on them, ready to dispense 'Gold Top' and the ordinary kind of milk.
