Alan and Jean have already started on the second volume of their proposed 'Mediterranean trilogy'. It features Jack, Mary and their two girls on another overseas adventure, this time on the island of Malta. Once again the writing is based on actual events, with Jack's intransigence landing him in all sorts of trouble with the Government, the Trades Unions and even the Mafia! Mary's colourful friend Julia also returns to lend a touch of glamour to the story, and some unexpected attention from a minor Hungarian aristocrat further enlivens events.
Currently under the working title of 'The Maltese Affair', the book's publication date is planned for the end of 2020
