The Queen of Crime returns with her latest thriller, the year is
ALLIE BURNS IS BACK.
Older and maybe wiser, she’s running the northern news operation of
the Sunday Globe, chafing at losing her role in investigative
journalism and at the descent into the gutter of the UK tabloid media.
But there’s plenty to keep her occupied. The year begins with the
memorial service to the victims of the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103,
but Allie has barely filed her copy when she stumbles over a story
about HIV/AIDS that will shock her into a major change of direction.
The world of newspapers is undergoing a revolution, there’s
skulduggery in the medical research labs and there are seismic
rumblings behind the Iron Curtain. When kidnap and murder are added to
this potent mix, Allie is forced to question all her old certainties.
We were so lucky to welcome Val last autumn for the first in the
series _1979_ and we’re equally grateful to have the Queen of Crime
again! We have a limited time special “bring a friend for free”
option for this event, so make sure to book on soon!
