Glad you enjoyed it, Chong. It's not far from me and I try and get their when I can - as well as fantastic book browsing, it's a very picturesque area of the country. If you can, put The Hidden Files to the top of your to be read pile, I'm sure he'll come up a lot in next month's UK HB/Noir and it's a fascinating read. Any other avians ever find themselves in the wild wild west country take that detour! All the best, Colin.
