It's a reference to a character in the brilliant Sidney Poitier film 'In the Heat of the Night', and its sequel, 'They Call Me Mr Tibbs'. DC Dennis Tibbs is a black officer, so he is nicknamed Virgil after the FBI character so wonderfully played by Poitier in the film. If you've not seen it, I highly recommend it!(less)

Not only a Book 9, which I have just started, but also a retrospective prequel to the series, which will be released in time for New Year. If you join the We Love Ted Darling group on Facebook, you can see a sneaky little extract from the prequel.(less)

If you really do love Ted Darling, share the love with FREE Ted Darling badges. It started out as a joke when a reader, clearly meaning well, reported the famous ‘billirant’ typo to Amazon (the one made by a drunken Trev to Ted) as being a typo. Despite it being in a paragraph which read: ‘They still made a joke of Trev’s drunken typo’. One of the beta-readers suggested w...

I really enjoyed this story. It was great to read about how Trev and Ted's relationship started and how Ted's career has progressed. I can't wait for the next Ted Darling mystery."
