The Purple Valley is the second book in the Marston Baines series. Simon Baines, on holiday again with his secret agent uncle and his friend Charles, soon finds that Provence proves as exciting as Italy did in Three Towers in Tuscany. The trio, with two charming girl graduates, Kate and Annabelle, soon find themselves exploring Provence for the source of an addictive drug which has begun to circulate among university students...
Stephen Bigger, Malcolm Saville Society expert on Marston Baines, is writing the introduction and publishing history.
The Purple Valley will be published at the end of July.
