International bestseller, Ann Cleeves, returns to the smash-hit Vera Stanhope series with her latest book, The Darkest Evening, a classic country house mystery with a contemporary twist.

Daylight is the follow up to Long Road to Mercy and A Minute to Midnight featuring Special Agent Atlee Pine from one of the world’s bestselling thriller writers, David Baldacci.

You can join these two masters of their craft on Tuesday November 24 at 8pm.

They will be interviewed by Barry Forshaw, author of Crime Fiction: A Reader's Guide and British Crime Writing: An Encyclopedia, before taking questions from the audience.

Griffin Books will bring its 2020 events programme to a close on Thursday November 26 with the official online book launch for local author Sam Hurcom’s new novel, Letters from the Dead.

This atmospheric gothic crime story is the sequel to Sam's debut novel A Shadow on the Lens, which was set in Dinas Powys.
