Joanne Harris' A Narrow Door is out on the 4th of August:
It's an incendiary moment for St. Oswald's School. For the first time in its history, a headmistress is in power, the gates opening to girls. Rebecca Buckfast has spilled blood to reach this position. Barely forty, she is just starting to reap the harvest of her ambition.
As the new regime takes on the old guard, the ground shifts. And with it, the remains of a body are discovered. But Rebecca is here to make her mark.
She'll bury the past so deep it will evade even her own memory, just like she has done before. After all... You can't keep a good woman down.
Shari Lapena's Not a Happy Family is out on 5th August:
In this family, everyone is keeping secrets - even the dead. In the quiet, wealthy enclave of Brecken Hill, an older couple is brutally murdered hours after a tense Easter dinner with their three adult children.
Who, of course, are devastated...or are they? They each stand to inherit millions. They were never a happy family, thanks to their vindictive father and neglectful mother, but perhaps one of them is more disturbed than anyone knew. Did someone snap after that dreadful evening? Or did another person appear later that night with the worst of intentions? That must be what happened. After all, if one of the family were capable of something as gruesome as this, you'd know. Wouldn't you?
The event will be chaired my Lisa Howells, a highly experienced journalist. She is currently heading up production over three best-selling magazines - heat, Bella and Crime Monthly. She regularly chairs author events, and was invited to judge the 2020 British Book Awards and the Theakston’s Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year. If you’re looking for an expert on Crime writing, look no further.
Ticket price is redeemable against a copy of either A Narrow Door or Not a Happy Family.
The event will be held on Monday 16th of August at 7:00pm.
