Author Peter James ends up with pants on his head after wrist operation

First published in News

Best-selling author Peter James might need to call his latest work Dead Funny after releasing a photo of himself with pants on his head.

The Brighton writer has been in hospital in London for surgery on Carpal Tunnel syndrome on his wrist.

The injury is thought to have been caused by his prolific writing.

The author thanked his fans, who had sent him messages of support, by releasing the photo – complete with pants on his head.

He posted on his Facebook page: “I thought you’d like to see this pic of me this morning, pre-op!

“I didn’t realise these were underpants – I thought it was a hygienic hat I was supposed to wear – the nurses were very amused.”

This usually signals a new book is on the way. But it is actually not due out until June. I am a fan, I have bought all the Roy Grace books, but not a fan of some of his publicity stunts.

Oh no! Not another Peter James non-story. But it certainly confirms my long held suspicions about this man.

Are we, the local taxpayers, still paying for this 'expert' (along with 9 others) to be sitting on the consultitative body set up by the Green Party MP and Council to look into setting up illegal 'shooting galleries'.
