    Hi Iain,

    I caught wind of your book from Stuart Smith and Jon Steele on their J-League podcast, and it’s just great. I’m going to pick up your three novels next. Just wanted to drop a note to say thanks for your writing.

      Hi Brian, thanks for getting in touch and for buying the book. I didn’t know Stuart and Jon had mentioned it, I’ll have to track down that episode!
