DAVID MCCALLUM NOVEL

David McCallum (The Man From UNCLE, The Invisible Man, Sapphire and Steel) released his debut novel this month! I'm excited to see him so active these days and I look forward to reading his story. I'm also happy for my pals in the LA area who were able to attend a book signing last week with the actor. From the publisher's press release: "Crime pays. And pays well. Sal, Max and Enzo Bruschetti have proved this over a lifetime of nefarious activity that they have kept hidden from law enforcement. Nowhere in any file, on any computer is there a record of anything illegal from which they have profited. But Max has a problem. His body is getting old and his doctor has told him to take it easy. Max has decided that the time has come for the family to retire. But when young actor Harry Murphy overhears the Bruschetti brothers planning changes to their organization, including the murder of a man in London who knows too much, the Bruschetti's plans begin to unravel. After Harry makes the well-intentioned if egregious mistake of trying to warn the Bruchetti's intended victim he finds himself alone in a foreign country, on the wrong side of the law, with a suitcase full of cash and a dangerous man on his trail. And while his good looks, charm and cheerful persistence may prove assets in the turbulent events that follow, none of Harry's past roles have prepared him for what happens next. A turns tense and funny, Once a Crooked Man is infused with the infectious charm that has made David McCallum one of television's longest running, most-beloved stars." Below: jacket designs for the UK and US editions. The UK cover sports a blurb from Sapphire and Steel co-star, Joanna Lumley (The New Avengers, On Her Majesty's Secret Service). Available on Amazon and AmazonUK. Enjoy!
