Great news announced today at the Frankfurt Book Fair is that a previously unreleased novel by Desmond Bagley - Domino Island - will be published by HarperCollins Publishers UK in May 2019 !

Thirty-six years after the author's passing, a new novel being published is a tremendous achievement. It is the result of tireless dedication and support of the author's work by David Brawn, the Estates Manager at the publisher. Given that David also works for the Agatha Christie and Tolkien estates, this is a tremendous recommendation and cannot be understated.

Big thanks must also go to Philip Eastwood of The Bagley Brief web-site for his own dogged, extensive, trans-Atlantic research in support of his own project The Bagley Legacy. As you'll remember from my earlier posts Philip made a very successful appearance at the Guernsey Literary Festival this year, promoting the author.

The ISBN has already been allocated so you should be able pre-order from your favourite web-store:

ISBN: 978-0008333010

... certainly it is listed on Amazon.
