Debut UK author Rohan Gavin has recently published the first in a detective series for Bloomsbury Books Knightly and Son. I had the pleasure of meeting Rohan Gavin (also a screenwriter) several years ago at the National Theatre in London for the last performance of Corum Boy (which also appeared on Broadway), an adaptation Jamila Gavin’s novel. This is a family steeped in talent. I was delighted to walk into a bookstore and find their books stocked side by side. Based on the reviews I’ve read, the book seems the perfect choice for the middle grade children in your life.
