Climb on board the Mystery Tour bus and enjoy the ride.
Today our guest is Simon Cornish and his book Rosetta.
Where is your home town?
Ottery St. Mary, Devon, UK
I like a mystery that is not, at first, obviously so. I don’t buy into the mainstream crime fiction side, it’s the journey that gets me excited. In the case of Rosetta, it was a thrill to write a story that involved a mystery that appeared to be less and less rational the more the main protagonist learned.
It skirts romance and even speculative fiction.
Where is your book set?
Largely around Exeter, the University campus and other locations in and around the city. Also Cambridge, London and central Turkey.
Dr Graham Chandlers is an archaeologist at Cambridge. A man in his early thirties, who has principles when it comes to young attractive women the same age as the postgrad students he takes for seminars. A man who has travelled to some of the most fascinating ancient sites in the world and touched markings pressed into clay by hands thousands of years before. An academic at the top of his field studying ancient languages, their origins and how they would have been spoken. One of only a handful who could hope to recognise ancient Hattic were it spoken out loud.

Hi Simon, great to see you here. Hope you have a fantastic day on the tour. I like 3000 year old mysteries. Rosetta is on my TBR list.
Hello Simon, just like Gordon I’ve got it and looking fwd to reading soon as I can. And just like Gordon, 3000 y. o. mysteries are just up my street too. Good luck and all the best
Sounds fascinating, I’m definitely adding this to my list! Lovely to meet you Simon and have a great day on the tour 🙂
