I have found a mint copy of The Interrogator by Andrew Williams on the shelves at Crime Scraps HQ. This book was shortlisted for both the Ellis Peters Historical and the Ian Fleming Steel Dagger awards.

You have a chance to win this book by answering just one straightforward question.

Who is the only British Prime Minister to be born outside the British Isles ?

Please send answers to thbear08@googlemail.com by next Saturday 14 November midnight GMT.

Update: sharp eyed readers may spot that I have altered the term Great Britain to British Isles as it was pointed out to me that the term Great Britain would lead to another Prime Minister meeting the criteria.
I admit to constant confusion on when to use the terms United Kingdom or Great Britain. Answers next Sunday 15 November.

    >At last – one of your questions I can answer!

  2. >Well Rob I have had a seasonal flu vaccine in one arm and a swine flu injection in the other so perhaps I am not on top question setting form. ;O)

    >Poor you! You must feel like a needle cushion. And I second Rob, this one was also within my limits.

  4. >Dorte I forgot they took blood as well. With the result I am weakened and people can actually answer the question.

    >I dunno. I love those mind bending find the link questions. Last one I did kept me out of trouble for days.

  6. >Sunnie no one answered the last quiz correctly so those questions will reappear later. I have another book to give away next week courtesy of Picador USA. I will sort out a "mind bending find the link question" or questions for that and the gang can blame you. ;o) You get a bonus mark for having such a gorgeous looking dog.
