An evening with JM Hall

March 29, 2023 @ 18:30 21:00

We are thrilled to welcome back Yorkshire crime writer, Jonathan Hall to the shop to chat about his latest release A Pen Dipped in Poison. Hall’s debut novel, A Spoonful of Murder is about retired primary school teachers who turn to sleuthing and has sold over 59,000 copies to date.

J.M. Hall is an author, playwright and deputy head of a primary school. His plays have been produced in theatres across the UK as well as for radio, the most recent being Trust, starring Julie Hesmondhalgh on BBC Radio 4.

Retired school teachers Liz, Pat and Thelma are back at their usual table at the Thirsk Garden Centre café with a brand-new mystery to solve.

Curious white envelopes have been delivered to friends and neighbours. Inside are letters revealing the deepest secrets they have tried to hide.  As one by one, careers are ended, marriages destroyed and no one is beyond suspicion, the three friends decide enough is enough.  They must take matters into their own hands before more damage is done.  But as they work to uncover the truth, they begin to wonder just how far someone will go to silence this poison pen … Could a murderer be in their midst once again?

A totally addictive and page-turning cosy mystery featuring these very unlikely sleuths.  Fans of Agatha Christie and Midsomer Murders will be hooked from the very first page.
