This month's cover feature, and the second of Hector's Journeys, in which Hector, our intrepid psychiatrist, sets off on a new globetrotting mission, and this time he's looking for love. One of the world's largest pharmaceutical companies has employed him to track down their brilliant scientist, Professor Cormorant, who has disappeared abroad with the secret of a modern day love potion. Hector's adventure takes him to the Far East and into the arms of the beautiful Vayla, forcing our hero to think what love really is/means. Filled with thoughtful insights, this follow up to "Hector and the Search for Happiness" is set to be justifiably huge.

Francois Lelord studied and practiced psychiatry in Paris, and was a consultant for companies interested in reducing stress for their employees. The huge success of Hector and the Search for Happiness led him to spend more time writing and travelling, ending up in Vietnam during the Sars epidemic. There he practiced psychiatry for a French NGO and met his future wife Phuong. Today they live in Thailand. Hector and the Search for Happiness was adapted for film in 2015, starring Simon Pegg and Rosamund Pike.
