- Will Alec Milius return?
I hope so. I always intended to write a trilogy of novels about Alec, but other projects have got in the way. I would like Alec to find some sort of personal and professional redemption.

Possibly. The idea of writing a novel about China’s impact on Africa is intriguing to me. Joe would be the perfect man to send into that environment.

- Are you related to Sir Mansfield Cumming?
No. The first Chief of the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6) was called Mansfield Cumming. He was born Mansfield Smith, but married a Cumming (no relation either) and then took her name because it was less run-of-the-mill. The letter 'C', used today to identify the 'Chief' of MI6, was originally an abbreviation of 'Cumming'.
