Hi Lisa-Marie. Sorry for the late response, but I've only just spotted this thread while I was writing in another. Thanks for pointing this out. I've checked my research notes and I'm sure I didn't mean to suggest that Captain Cook was buried at Shadwell, but that he was a parishioner there. Looking at what I've written though I can see how it's ambiguous.

"More than seventy sea captains have been buried in our churchyard over the years," he said. "One important parishioner I'm sure you've all heard of is Captain Cook."

I'm going to change it as follows to make it clear.

"More than seventy sea captains have been buried in our churchyard over the years," he said. "And although not buried here, one important parishioner I'm sure you've all heard of is Captain Cook."

Steve I have really enjoyed all your books so far and I am looking forward to reading your new one.
About the slip up about Captain Cook, we all make mistakes can't be brilliant all the time - but you
are 99% of it. It just show your human.

Keep the good books coming.

Best wishes
Midnight

Thanks Midnight, it's very kind of you to say so. Book four is coming along nicely and I don't know if you've heard, but it's going to be published by Amazon Publishing under their Thomas & Mercer imprint next year. The date hasn't been finalised yet, but I'll be sure to let you know as soon as it is.
