Book by Dr Nigel Brown – former District Vet Bombala (more recently in the Middle East)

From Robyn: “Nigel’s book is now available on Amazon.

“Without boasting about my husband too much it is a good read and easy to read – sex, drugs, murder & mayhem!! What more do you need in a book? Well we won’t go there but it is good novel and we appreciate your support and if you don’t want to buy it would be wonderful if you could ask your local library to get it in. If you enjoy it please tell us & your friends.

“So exciting to have a husband as a published author.
