A Twist on the Cosy: Vaseem Khan, Catriona McPherson and Lynne Truss
Saturday 21st September from 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm BST£8 – £9
It’s always the quiet ones you have to watch. Some novels – and their authors – may look harmless but murder is murder, whether it comes with a baby elephant or a side plate of whimsy.
In Vaseem Khan’s fabulous Bad Day at the Vulture Club, the body of a slain industrialist is left on holy ground to be devoured by vultures. Catriona McPherson’s Strangers at the Gate starts out in the Christie country house tradition, but it takes a turn. It’s a contemporary, punchy novel that becomes ever more suspenseful and unnerving. The Man That Got Away is the second in Lynne Truss’s joyfully quirky Twitten series set on the not-so-mean streets of Brighton.
