Following on from our post last week about The CWA (Crime Writers’ Association) Dagger in the Library, we are thrilled to announce that one of the fabulous authors longlisted for this award will be visiting Bury Library on Thursday 4th May.
Join us at 7pm to meet Kate Ellis, the popular author of two thrilling crime series; Wesley Peterson’s blend of mystery and history and the spookily mysterious DI Joe Plantagenet series. Kate has also written two historical crime novels as well as many short stories, and she has sold more than half a million books worldwide.
Kate will be reading from her latest novel ‘A High Mortality of Doves’, a powerful and stunning crime novel set in the aftermath of World War I, which is due out in paperback on the day of her visit to Bury. There will also be an opportunity to buy signed copies at the event, thanks to Beyond Books Media.
1919. The Derbyshire village of Wenfield is still reeling from the war, and now, just when the village is coming to terms with the loss of so many of its sons, the brutal murder of a young girl shatters its hard-won tranquillity. Myrtle Bligh is found stabbed and left in woodland, her mouth slit to accommodate a dead dove, a bird of peace.
When two more women are found murdered in identical circumstances, Inspector Albert Lincoln is sent up from London, a man not only wounded in war but damaged in peace by the death of his young son and his cold, loveless marriage. With rumours of a ghostly soldier with a painted face being spotted near the scene of the murders. the village is thrown into a state of panic – and with the killer still on the loose, who will be the next to die at the hands of this vicious angel of death?
