MEET THE AUTHOR
WITH ROBERT J. HARRIS

Perhaps best known as the creator of the bestselling fantasy board game Talisman, and lesser-known for his role as an extra in an episode of Taggart, Robert J. Harris is the author of numerous books for both children and adults.

After revitalising John Buchan’s legendary hero Richard Hannay in The Thirty-One Kings, this year he sets his sights on Sherlock Holmes in a brand new adventure, A Study in Crimson.
