When in September I saw that Jane Finnis's web site stated she had only one new book out in December 2011 but that there were two new books listed on Amazon I emailed her contact address and Jane kindly responded within 4 hrs.
Jane said:- "SHADOWS IN THE NIGHT ... isn't a new book - just an existing book (GET OUT OR DIE) being re-released in December with a new title. Why the name change? My publishers wanted it. They've never been 100% in favour of the original title" ... "and I'm happy with the change, except where it may confuse people...the last thing I want is for anyone to be misled into buying a book they think is new, when it isn't! On the other hand of course I want *everyone* to rush out and buy DANGER IN THE WIND...well I would, wouldn't I? <g>"
Jane updated her site in September 2011 to explain about SHADOWS IN THE NIGHT.
Jane said that all three existing Aurelia Marcella mysteries are being re-issued with new covers, "but thank goodness only one is changing its title"
When this happened in September 2011 there was no other Amazon mechanism available except the Product Discussion Forum to warn potential readers that this was a re-issue with a name change. I used the "update product info" to contact Amazon but they rejected the advice to add a warning in the product description. Slate Amazon - not the author or the book.
