All The Hidden Truths: An Evening with Claire Askew

May 9 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

£3.00 - £8.99

In August last year we celebrated the launch of our Writer-in-Residence Claire Askew’s phenomenal debut novel ALL THE HIDDEN TRUTHS in a sold-out external venue. The paperback of the novel is published this May and we are excited to host an intimate launch at Golden Hare Books, where Claire will be in conversation to discuss her year as a debut novelist and what’s next for DI Birch. We may even get a sneak preview of the next book WHAT YOU PAY FOR…


 

About All the Hidden Truths

In the aftermath of a tragedy, the world needs an explanation.

In Edinburgh, after the Three Rivers College shooting, some things are clear.

They know who. They know when.

No one can say why.

For three women the lack of answers is unbearable: DI Helen Birch, the detective charged with solving the case. Ishbel, the mother of the first victim, struggling to cope with her grief. And Moira, mother of the killer, who needs to understand what happened to her son.

But as people search for someone to blame, the truth seems to vanish..
