[extract from The El Dorado Machine, first published in The New Yorker]
The rain forests of Mosquitia, which span more than thirty-two thousand square miles of Honduras and Nicaragua, are among the densest and most inhospitable in the world. “It’s mountainous,” Chris Begley, an archeologist and expert on Honduras, told me recently. “There’s white water. There are jumping vipers, coral snakes, fer-de-lance, stinging plants, and biting insects. And then there are the illnesses—malaria, dengue fever, leishmaniasis, Chagas’.” Nevertheless, for nearly a century, archeologists and adventurers have plunged into the region, in search of the ruins of an ancient city, built of white stone, called la Ciudad Blanca, the White City.

Aleppo, one of the oldest inhabited cities in the world and a UNESCO world heritage site, has been at the forefront of the civil war in Syria since July 2012. Before the recent terrible destruction now taking place there, it was a thriving city, and also home to one of the world's most distinguished and vibrant cuisines. Surrounded by fertile lands and located at the end of the Silk Road, Aleppo was a food capital long before Paris, Rome or New York.

I found personal accounts of the war from individual soldiers’ recollections, as well as observations made by war correspondents and diaries kept by nurses in the field. I’m sure that any reader with knowledge of this conflict will recognize that one of my characters could, in part, be modelled on Miss Emily Hobhouse, the daughter of an Anglican rector. This Cornishwoman travelled to South Africa to do what she could to alleviate the suffering of the women and children in the concentration camps. These internment camps were set up to house the families whose farms had been burned out in order to disrupt the Boer fighters’ supply lines. This was a badly conceived concept based on a strategic and logistical problem.

Last week I met a Beadle. I was the guest speaker at the Ladies’ Banquet for the Worshipful Company of Environmental Cleaners (WCEC) at the Stationers’ Hall near St Paul’s Cathedral. The magnificent Hall, dating from 1670, has been good to me; it was there that I received The People’s Prize for Fiction in 2010. I was invited to the Banquet because the Mistress Angie Kay, partner of Master, Philip Morrish, is a fan of my detective duo Stella and Jack.
