Historical crime writer coming to Grove Bookshop

The award-winning historical crime writer Bridget Walsh will be at The Grove Bookshop on Wednesday 17th July at 7pm to talk about her new book, The Innocents.

The book is a follow-up to The Tumbling Girl which has been shortlisted for a Crime Writers' Association New Blood Dagger.

The Variety Palace Music Hall is in trouble, due in no small part to a gruesome spate of murders that unfolded around it a few months previously.

Between writing, managing the music hall and trying to dissuade her boss from installing a water tank in the building, Minnie Ward has her hands full. Her complicated relationship with detective Albert Easterbrook doesn’t even bear thinking about.

But when a new string of murders tears through London, Minnie and Albert are thrown together once more. Strangely, the crimes seem to link back to a tragedy that took place fourteen years ago, leaving 183 children dead.

And given that the incident touched so many people’s lives, everyone is a suspect . . .

Tickets are £7 which include a welcome drink on arrival and are available by contacting the bookshop by phone 01943 609335, email or calling in to the store.
