Alert readers may have noticed a running reference throughout the Celtic Cousins Adventures to the above event. One or two have been curious enough to enquire when this escapade will be reported in full. Alas, like Sherlock Holmes's story of the Giant Rat of Sumatra, the tale of Crombie and the Great Elephant Stampede is one for which the world is not yet prepared. (Apologies to the great Arthur Conan-Doyle, whose British Detective still rules supreme in Amazon's top free download chart.)
However, Crombie and the Alligator is another story entirely – but only now can the full shocking truth be revealed (names have been changed to protect the innocent). An Explosive Time is third in the Celtic Cousins Adventures – consequently it's the last to come out of Amazon's select programme.* So diaries out – after a wet washout July, we're all looking forward to an amazing August, get ready for An Explosive Time and start your summer with a bang!
This story is shorter than its predecessors, A Raucous Time and A Ripple in Time, as action comes thick and fast. There's also less paranormal activity, but a word to the wise: Once again, Wren isn't being entirely honest in telling his cousin Rhyllann that the preternatural sword sometimes known as "Excalibur" has been destroyed.
Instead, the Celtic Cousins are left to rely on the Met Police in the burly shape of Detective Inspector Crombie. One or two readers have commented on Crombie's personality, asking if he's based on me. All I have to say is don't be so cheeky. The only thing I have in common with the grumpy fat man is a green Passat, (also a salvage scheme survivor). I have sons, not daughters and I'm a lot prettier. So there!
