Wymondham Words Literary Festival

Wymondham Library, Wymondham, Norfolk, England.

Friday 19 October 2018 at 7.30pm


The deservedly acclaimed crime novelist Cathi Unsworth will be joining me for a discussion of not only King Con but also her latest novel, That Old Black Magic. Funnily enough, the plot of her new novel, which is set during World War Two, intersects with some of the real-life events described in my last book, Rendezvous at the Russian tea Rooms
