After a full life’s hard work, retiring to the Maltese sunshine was supposed to be a relaxing sunset for Rosy’s grandparents, and a great holiday for her. But when a bleach-blonde barmaid from Bradford exploded on the scene, it all got a bit complicated. Rosy and Iain had to learn some tricky local law and intricacies of Maltese life quickly.

This family saga guides the reader across the years, and between the seasides of Lancashire and the Mediterranean, along with plenty of photos to help. A Maltese Crossing won’t make you a lawyer, but it will give you a great virtual adventure on this most enigmatic and fascinating island in the sun. Whether you read it at home, on the plane or on a Maltese beach, you will soak up the feeling, at no risk, unlike our accidental heroes.

Amaze your friends with your new favourite word: ‘usufruct! Guidebook, social history, a crime to solve or absolve, and a collection of all-too-realistic characters walking off the page to meet you  a captivating read.

Ross Hunter has always loved teaching, travel and writing. His four decades ‘at the chalkface’ and in the Head’s office, have taken Sue and him around UK, Europe, Russia and Asia. After many dozens of magazine articles, A Maltese Crossing is his first novel. He is an avid collector of maps, books, and travel clutter. His ideal year would be spent in Lancashire, France, Moscow and SE Asia, on a bicycle when possible, and not flying. He speaks English, (ef)fluent French and some Russian, plus a few bits and pieces. Lockdown has meant virtual travel, so more writing.
