This was - as I've frequently mentioned - my own favourite of my own books.

I'll be frank about it. I had very much hoped that I would be able to do a number of such books. I loved doing it and was very proud of the result. But ... it was extremely expensive to research, took two years of my life, and then sold a tenth as well as any of my novels. Plus the project was a partnership between me and the zoologist Mark Carwardine, and we split it 50/50. I simply couldn't afford to do another one.

There is much talk (and has been for a while) of doing a TV series, which of course changes things, but there is nothing definite.
