And in the lead-up to the US release of The Poisoned Pawn …

The Poisoned Pawn will hit US bookshelves next February, which seems a long way off. Imagine my surprise at seeing this reference  to it under “Fiction Previews” in the LibraryJournal in the US by the very well-known reviewer, Barbara Hoffert! Nice!

Blair, Peggy. The Poisoned Pawn. Pintail: Putnam. Feb. 2014. 336p. ISBN 9780143189763. pap. $16. MYSTERY
In Blair’s The Beggar’s Opera, shortlisted for the Crime Writer’s Association’s Debut Dagger Award, Det. Mike Ellis was cleared of murdering a young beggar while on vacation in Old Havana. Now he’s home in Canada, accused of murdering his estranged wife, even as Inspector Ramirez of the Havana Major Crimes Unit arrives to take custody of a Cuban priest. Blair must be good, as she had neither agent nor publisher when she submitted The Beggar’s Opera for the CWA award; through Ian Rankin, whom she met at the ceremony, she got both.
