Dear Mr. Cornwell! I have just read the German version of "Scoundrel" and liked it. Very different from your historical novels. I wonder where you got all your information about the world of terrorism. Sounds like a dangerous field! Or did you make it all up? Either way, you did a fine job. But, what I do wonder, was it really you who wrote this book? Because, my edition (ECON Taschenbuch Verlag, 1996, ISBN 3-612-27238-1) calls the writer "Bernh(!!!)hard Cornwell". Curious! :-) How did that happen? As an Englishman I would not think that you were called the German name Bernhard and lost your H somewhere. Or, did you??? Naaaah! Bye, Grisel
I wrote it, honest. I have no idea where the 'h' came from - not from me. I assume the German publishers added it out of habit. The information about terrorism? I was a journalist in Belfast during the troubles and picked it all up there.
