Crime in Cambridge: An Evening with LC North and JS Monroe
Wednesday 14th June 2023
18:00 - 19:30 at Waterstones, Cambridge
Celebrate CWA National Crime Reading Month with a fantastic Crime in Cambridge panel. Join us for a thrilling evening with two fantastic crime writers: Suffolk based LC North, author of The Ugly Truth,and JS Monroe, author of No Place To Hide,set in Cambridge. They discuss their new novels all about surveillance and the dark side of celebrity culture. In No Place to Hide, set largely in Cambridge, Adam lives the picture-perfect life, but also lives with a secret. And now, he’s convinced he’s being watched all because of something terrible that happened at a drunken party when he was a student at Cambridge. In The Ugly Truth, Melanie is a woman who spends all of her time in the public eye, until she goes missing. Her father claims she’s been admitted to a private mental health clinic; her ex-husband and best friend say she’s been kidnapped.
Alternating between being seen and absence, personal identity and public persona, both novels ask questions about how past decisions determine the present, and who’s story can be believed. Chaired by beloved Cambridge crime writer Alison Bruce, this is a panel you won’t want to miss.
L.C. North studied psychology at university before pursuing a career in Public Relations. Her first book club thriller The Ugly Truth combines her love of psychology and her fascination with the celebrities in the public eye. She co-hosts the crime thriller podcast, In Suspense. L.C. North lives on the Suffolk borders with her family.
J.S. Monroe read English at Magdalene College, University of Cambridge. He is the author of five psychological thrillers, including the international bestseller, Find Me. Under the name Jon Stock, he has also written five spy novels, one of which, Dead Spy Running, was optioned by Warner Bros.
Alison Bruce is the author of nine crime novels and two non-fiction titles. Her first novel, Cambridge Blue (2008), was described by Publishers Weekly as an ‘assured debut’ and introduced both detective, DC Gary Goodhew, and her trademark Cambridge setting. She went on to write six further novels in the DC Goodhew series before writing the psychological thriller I Did It for Us (2018) and The Moment Before Impact (2020). Alison is currently working on the UK’s largest policing professionalism contract which will deliver a policing degree to 7 police forces including Cambridgeshire.
