In The Murder of Harriet Monckton
, Elizabeth Haynes turns the skills she honed working for many years as a police analyst to an unsolved historical murder, which occurred, weirdly coincidentally, on 6 November, 1843.
Elizabeth is a great favourite with readers. Her New York Times bestselling debut novel,Into the Darkest Corner, won both Amazon's Book of the Year and Amazon's Rising Star Award. She is also a great proponent of NaNoWriMo, so this is a perfect event for anyone tackling their 2018 novel-in-a-month.
'I loved The Murder of Harriet Monckton; what a tour de force! I'm blown away. Elizabeth Haynes completely transported me to that time and place. I also found the novel incredibly moving and I'm so glad to know Harriet's story. The novel is an absolute triumph.' -Elly Griffiths
Our grilling subject this month is Peter Adamson. The Kennedy Moment, his third novel, is a daring, ingenious and profoundly moving political thriller.
Peter founded New Internationalist magazine in the 1970s and was for sixteen years a Senior Adviser to the Executive Director of UNICEF. He has been at the very heart of international affairs, so no one is better qualified to write about world-spanning conspiracies and high-level plotting.
'Intelligent and thought-provoking, his new novel is a suspenseful and gripping tale with well-rounded characters and a plot that is outrageous yet plausible.' -Oxford Times
