A message from Kimberley Reeman . . .

Dear friends,

My beloved husband, Douglas Edward Reeman, Lieutenant-Commander Royal Naval Reserve, crossed the Bar peacefully at home on the night of January 23, 2017. I was holding his hand.

His books have touched the lives of so many people all over the world, of all ages and in every walk of life. I promise that I will keep his flag flying, and do everything within my power to ensure that these wonderful stories remain available in every format so that they may be enjoyed for years to come.

God bless you all, and thank you for your support as I walk this dark path in a world made colder by his absence.
