Midlands Noir with Stephen Booth, Sarah Ward & Roz Watkins

Monday 20th May 18:30 at Nottingham

It's grim up Midlands! So we've invited three of the area's finest and best-selling thriller writers for a chat about murder and mayhem with us in the Sillitoe Room.

The talk will be followed by an audience Q&A and signing, with the chance to meet the (actually very lovely and not at all ghastly) authors.


FALL DOWN DEAD
by Stephen Booth

The dramatic, gripping new Cooper & Fry crime thriller from bestseller Stephen Booth sees the stunning Peak District prove fatal for one walking party.
The mountain of Kinder Scout offers the most incredible views of the Peak District, but when thick fog descends there on a walking party led by enigmatic Darius Roth, this spectacular landscape is turned into a death trap that claims a life.

THE SHROUDED PATH
by Sarah Ward

The past won't stay buried forever. November, 1957: Six teenage girls walk in the churning Derbyshire mists, the first chills of winter in the air. Their voices carrying across the fields, they follow the old train tracks into the dark tunnel of the Cutting. Only five appear on the other side. October, 2014: a dying mother, feverishly fixated on a friend from her childhood, makes a plea: 'Find Valerie.' Mina's elderly mother had never discussed her childhood with her daughter before. So who was Valerie? Where does her obsession spring from?

DEAD MAN'S DAUGHTER
by Roz Watkins

DI Meg Dalton is thrown headlong into her latest case when she finds a ten-year-old girl running barefoot through the woods in a blood-soaked nightdress. In the house nearby, the girl's father has been brutally stabbed to death.
At first Meg suspects a robbery gone tragically wrong, but something doesn't add up. Why does the girl have no memory of what happened to her? And why has her behaviour changed so dramatically since her recent heart transplant?
