Don we now our Garment of Shadows!
At last, the day we’ve been waiting for since…well, the last pub day: That’s right, today’s the release day for Garment of Shadows. I hope some of you will be at the Scottsdale launch party tonight, although if you’re in a different time zone, you can log on here to participate in everything except the taste of the hummus.
And since I’m sure all of you who aren’t waiting for me to sign a book for you in Scottsdale tonight will want to rush out to your local bookseller when they open, I won’t set any more words in front of you. But in case you’d like a few more images, how about some that move?
This is one of the pleasures of a book that involves real people–you can see what they actually looked like, catch a glimpse of their world.

And what about the man on the French side of the border, that fellow with some unexpected connections to Sherlock Holmes, Marechal Hubert Lyautey? He’s here, in scenes filmed just weeks after the close of Garment of Shadows.
