Hello, Mr. Delaney. As I appreciate your work and absolutely love the books I do have a couple of questions:
How old was the Spook? As it seems I have missed that.
The war that takes place in the County has any real life inspiration?
There was no real life inspiration for the recent War! The first war that happened to bring about the hanging men was slightly inspired by the English Civil War. The Spook had to be about eighty and was amazingly fit for his age! I have never mentioned his age in the books. I left that to the reader!
