Lauren North in Conversation with Jack Jordan
There have been a few really good psychological thrillers written by authors living in this region which have come out recently. We hope you will feel the same about Lauren North’s debut novel, The Perfect Betrayal. Lauren lives on the Essex/Suffolk border & she will be in conversation with fellow crime writer Jack Jordan about her book. The story centres on Tess, who is drowning in grief following the death of her husband in an aircrash & all she can focus on is keeping her only son Jamie safe. When beautiful, grief-counseller Shelley turns up it seems like the answer to Tess’s prayers but then odd things start to happen which make her doubt her own sanity & the motives of those around her. The novel is a brilliant portrait of a mind so damaged by traumatic emotion that Tess is losing her grip on reality & it is also a relentlessly absorbing mystery. Don’t miss the chance to hear Lauren talk about her book & then you will get a chance to ask questions & get a signed copy, if you purchase the book.
Tickets are £2 including complimentary wine & nibbles. The doors will open at 6.30pm for a 7pm start.
