Murder in Samarkand has finally been released after ten months in legal limbo. Amazon are posting it out today. Bookshops are still a bit wary of taking it into stock as we wait to see if the FCO carries out its threat to take legal action once published.

TWO Italian intelligence officials have been arrested for allegedly helping the CIA to kidnap a terror suspect
Prosecutors also said they were seeking the arrest of four more Americans as part of an investigation into the alleged CIA kidnapping of an Egyptian cleric in Milan in 2003.
A statement released in Milan said three were CIA agents, while the fourth American worked at the joint US-Italian air base of Aviano, where the Egyptian was allegedly taken after his abduction. The statement also said that two Italian officials with the SISMI intelligence agency were placed under arrest. They were the first Italians to be involved in the probe.
