I'm off to Milan next week to research Own Goal, the fifth Foul Play book. I need to go to the San Siro and some city centre sites for settings.

I am also going to Lake Como where my villain will live in a villa on an island. It'll be nice to go back there with my wife, seeing as this is where we went on our honeymoon nine years ago. Good to take our daughter there too.

In the book Danny is going to have to swim off the island across half a mile of lake. I like to do as much research as I can, so I'm planning to do the same. Just so I can get my facts right.

Leeds lost a friendly to Bury last night. 4-0.
