An evening with crime authors Marnie Riches & Luca Veste
Tuesday 30th July 18:00 - 20:00 at Liverpool
Tightrope - What happens when a private investigator ends up being the one uncovered?
Having lost everything after a failed marriage, Beverley Sanders now lodges in the basement flat of a house owned by her best friend Sophie and Sophie’s husband, Tim. With her former glittering marketing career in the gutter, she undertakes investigative work for other wronged women; gathering dirt on philanderers, bosses, cheats and exes.
Beverley finds herself taking on the case of Sophie's friend, Angela who is seeking to uncover grounds for divorce from her controlling husband, Jerry, the shadow Science Minister. She takes the case but soon discovers that she isn't the only one who doing the investigating, and Beverley also has a secret history she doesn't want to come to light…

The Bone Keeper
What if the figure that haunted your nightmares as child, the myth of the man in the woods, was real?
He'll slice your flesh.
Your bones he'll keep.
Twenty years ago, four teenagers went exploring in the local woods, trying to find to the supposed home of The Bone Keeper. Only three returned. Now, a woman is found wandering the streets of Liverpool, horrifically injured, claiming to have fled the Bone Keeper. Investigating officer DC Louise Henderson must convince sceptical colleagues that this urban myth might be flesh and blood. But when a body is unearthed in the woodland the woman has fled from, the case takes on a much darker tone. The disappeared have been found. And their killer is watching every move the police make.
'Luca Veste proves you don't need to go to the Bayou or the Everglades to find something terrifying in the deep, dark woods. Sometimes evil is lurking just around the corner. An entertainingly nasty piece of work' Christopher Brookmyre
