Part of the Chortle Comedy Book Festival

Star of stage and screen – and now renowned criminologist – Count Arthur Strong has written his first spy novella.

Codename: Rattlesnake is a thrilling race against time as New Scotland Yard’s Inspector Marsden pits his wits against an old foe while wrestling with his inner demons in what could be the case of his career. 

Count Arthur Strong has been a feature of BBC radio since 2004, with the stories of the eccentric septuagenarian former music hall performer transferring to BBC One for three series from 2013 to 2017.

Count Arthur Strong replaces the previously advertised Andy Smart. 

In association with Chortle
