Is the judge related to Hercule, do you know? I will watch out for this one when/if it is translated. I like your trademark author pic, Norman!

Sorry I don't know but Martine is married to Thomas, a historian. so that might be her married name. That is about all the information I could find, and I thought the author's pic was interesting. ;O)
