You may have noticed that there is a new novel page on my website! The next book in the Ben Schroeder series, The Heirs of Owain Glyndwr, will be published soon, in July or August. Apologies to Welsh readers that I can’t find a way to put the circumflex ^ over the W in Glyndwr for this post, but I can assure you that it is there in the book – see cover, below! Following his adventures in the cases of Billy Cottage (A Matter for the Jury) and Sir James Digby (And is there Honey still for Tea?) Ben is called on to defend Arianwen Hughes, who is caught up in a conspiracy to cause a potentially lethal explosion at the time of the investiture of the Prince of Wales at Caernarfon Castle in 1969 – an event not universally popular in Wales. Arianwen’s brother Caradog and their friend Dafydd Prosser – Dai Bach- seem to be at the heart of the conspiracy. Her husband, Trevor Hughes, also seems to have been involved. Trevor may hold the key to saving Arianwen from a long prison sentence, but he mysteriously disappeared on the eve of the investiture, and Arianwen doesn’t even know whether he is dead or alive. It’s going to take all Ben’s skills and perhaps more to get to the truth this time. Pre-order now! I hope you enjoy it.
