Le quatrieme sacrifice (Serie chinoise 2) - AbeBooks - Peter May:
It was an easy mistake for people to make. Due to the years he spent writing and producing drama serials for Brirtish Television, The Firemaker was the first novel he'd had published in the US for a very long time, but the truth is, he had been published there before, so he had to let the organisers know and take his name off the shortlists. But it was nice to receive the nominations! Peter spent February in California researching his latest book and came back to a busy month of March in France with the French editions of The China Thrillers, so there is a lot of news to catch up with He also participated in a forum at the fair where he and two other crime writers were interviewed by a journalist on stage in front of an audience Peter has been invited to appear at book fairs and bookstores in France all across the summer.

Peter goes to the stage to receive his award Peter complaining that it's the first time in thirty years that he has worn a suit! The focus is is less about the murder, the clues, the tracking down of the perpetrator, than about the landscape against which it takes place, and the characters who become part of the narrative. Peter was delighted to receive the award, saying: 'This is the first literary award that any of my books have won in the UK, despite several short listings, and I am absolutely delighted that it is the Deanston Scottish Crime Novel of the Year.
It makes me immensely proud to be honoured by my ain folk in this way, and I owe a huge thanks to those Scottish readers who have propelled me to the top of the charts with their unerring support. And I have come to the conclusion that it is all about confidence - the confidence that successful pioneers like William McIlvanney and Ian Rankin have given the rest of us to write about our home country, and the confidence inspired by the wonderful loyalty of Scottish readers and the backing of Scottish bookstores. Bloody Scotland is a manifestation of that confidence, and this prize the ultimate seal of approval.
