Debut Crimewriters Panel

Past Events
28 June 2018 19:30 - 21:30
Waterloo Tea, Stanwell Road, Penarth, CF64 2AD

Join Sarah Hilary, author of the hugely successful 'Marnie Rome' series as she chairs a panel with two of the hottest debut crime authors this year, Karen Hamilton and Phoebe Locke.


Karen Hamilton's 'The Perfect Girlfriend' is a frightening depiction of unbridled obsession, where love and pure hatred grapple on a knife edge. 

"Juliette loves Nate. 

They are meant to be.

The fact that Nate broke up with her six months ago means nothing."



Phoebe Locke's 'The Tall Man' is a gripping blend of dark psychological suspense and spine-tingling chills that will have you checking the corners of your room before bed. YOU DON'T FIND HIM... HE FINDS YOU. 

"1990: In the darkest woods, three girls devote themselves to a sinister figure.

2000: A young mother disappears, leaving behind her husband and baby daughter.

2018: A teenage girl is charged with murder, and her trial will shock the world.

Three chilling events, connected by the shadow he casts.

He is the Tall Man. He can make you special..."


Chair for the evening will be Sarah Hilary whose most recent novel is the fifth in the Marnie Rome series: 'Come and Find Me'. 

"On the surface, Lara Chorley and Ruth Hull have nothing in common, other than their infatuation with Michael Vokey. Each is writing to a sadistic inmate, craving his attention. DI Marnie Rome understands obsession. She's finding it hard to give up her own addiction to a dangerous man: her foster brother, Stephen Keele. As the hunt for Vokey gathers pace, Marnie fears one of the women may have found him - and is about to pay the ultimate price."
