GRIFFIN Books is hosting its popular Christmas Crime event on Thursday, December 7, with best-selling author Janice Hallett.

Janice Hallett is the author behind the bestselling novel The Appeal, and is the winner of the CWA Debut Dagger Award.

The event at the Glamorganshire Golf Club will coincide with the release of her new book The Christmas Appeal.

The book is a mystery which sees the cast of The Appeal return as the discovery of a dead body disrupts the festive pantomime preparations.

Despite the season, goodwill is distinctly lacking amongst amateur dramatics enthusiasts. Of course, there’s also the matter of the dead body.

Join lawyers Femi and Charlotte as they read the round robins, examine the emails and pore over the police transcripts. Will the show go on?

The event will also have mince pies and mulled wine for the festive event. Tickets for the event event start at £10 and can be purchased at: or in-person from the shop.
