Over the years, I’ve read and thoroughly enjoyed a number of Rhys Bowen’s Royal Spyness, Molly Murphy and Constable Evans books – she really is a master of the quiet, cleverly plotted mystery. I was especially intrigued by the synopsis for her latest book, In Farleigh Field, as it represents something of a new direction for her. Set in Kent during World War Two, it involves MI5, Bletchley Park, codebreakers… and a mysterious airman. I was delighted that she was able to join me for a quick chat.
Keira Soleore: Welcome to All About Romance, Rhys. We’re delighted you could join us.
Rhys Bowen: Thanks for inviting me.
KS: World War II is a new setting for you. Is using something that you’ve always wanted to do? And what was the impetus behind the book?
