An Evening With Crime Writer Sarah Ward, In Conversation with Tim Rideout

Lindum Books are thrilled to welcome crime writer Sarah Ward, author of the Connie Childs crime series, back to Lindum Books with her new title The Birthday Girl.

They’re here to unwind. She’s here to kill. Welcome to Eldey, an island with deadly secrets…

Mona is a carefree artist, staying at The Cloister to work on her illustrations. Beth is the harried mother of a toddler, on the remote Welsh island for a weekend escape with her family. Charlotte wanted a romantic getaway with her husband, not a trip with his troubled teenage stepdaughter. One of them is a serial killer who poisoned three of her friends at her eleventh birthday party.

When one of the hotel guests is found dead, it becomes clear to Mallory Dawson – the night manager of the boutique island hotel and former police detective – that The Birthday Girl is among them. Three guests fit the profile, but which of them would risk everything to kill again?

Sarah Ward is a critically acclaimed crime and gothic thriller writer. Her book, A Patient Fury, was an Observer book of the month and The Quickening, written as Rhiannon Ward, a Radio Times book of the year. Sarah is on the Board of the Crime Writers Association, Derby Book Festival and Friends of Buxton International Festival. She is an RLF Fellow at Sheffield University.

The talk will be taking place on April 18th 7pm-9pm at The Collection with a book signing afterwards. The Collection café will be open for pre-event drinks and refreshments.

Tickets are available from Lindum Books and online from The Collection. £7 standard ticket £14 single ticket including book £17 couple ticket including book
