"If you’ve come up with a protagonist your readers have taken to their hearts, it makes sense to maintain that affection"

Is it wise for an author to change horses (or characters) midstream? If you’ve come up with a protagonist your readers have taken to their hearts, it makes sense to maintain that affection, as Nicolas Freeling did with his detective Van der Valk (recently reincarnated, to disappointing effect, on TV). Readers can now find his first outing, Love in Amsterdam, in a new reissue (Murder Room/Orion, RRP£8.99).
