Ali Land & Emma Flint Discuss Unorthodox Women In Crime Fiction
Tuesday 14th March 18:30 at Liverpool
Good me, Bad Me has been called this year's Gone Girl - and rightly so. A tense phsychological thriller with a central character with a voice to be reckoned with , this will leave you breathless.
Annie's mother is a serial killer. The only way she can make it stop is to hand her in to the police. But out of sight is not out of mind.
As her mother's trial looms, the secrets of her past won't let Annie sleep, even with a new foster family and name - Milly. A fresh start. Now, surely, she can be whoever she wants to be. But Milly's mother is a serial killer. And blood is thicker than water. Good me, bad me. She is, after all, her mother's daughter...
"Little Deaths" is based on the real murder of two children in New York in 1965. It is as much a novel about trial by media as a crime novel, as the mother of the children refuses to fall into the normal domestic strictures of the time.
"It's the summer of 1965, and the streets of Queens, New York shimmer in a heatwave.
One July morning, Ruth Malone wakes to find a bedroom window wide open and her two young children missing. After a desperate search, the police make a horrifying discovery. Noting Ruth's perfectly made-up face and provocative clothing, the empty liquor bottles and love letters that litter her apartment, the detectives leap to convenient conclusions, fuelled by neighbourhood gossip and speculation."
Haunting, intoxicating and heart-poundingly suspenseful, Little Deaths is a gripping novel about love, morality and obsession, exploring the capacity for good and evil within us all.
The event will be chaired by crime writer Sarah Ward ("A Deadly Thaw" and "In Bitter Chill"). Join us for what promises to be a fascinating evening as we discuss the role of the unorthodox woman in crime fiction, and beyond.
