Mike Craven in Conversation

***This Carlisle event is sold out, but Mike Craven will be  appearing  at the Words by the Water Festival

   Friday June 7th (the day after) at 4pm at the Theatre by the Lake,  Keswick

 Tickets available here 
Join Bookends on Thursday 6th June, 7.30pm at the Old Fire Station in Carlisle for an evening with the bestselling and hugely popular Mike Craven for the launch of the latest novel in the Washington Poe series, ‘The Mercy Chair’.   NOW SOLD OUT!

Are you sitting comfortably? Then he’ll begin . . .

Washington Poe has a story to tell. He needs you to listen. He needs you to pay attention.

It starts with the robber birds. Crows. Dozens of them. Enough for a murder . . . Poe will tell you about that.

He’ll tell you about a man who was tied to a tree and stoned to death, a man who had tattooed himself with a code so obscure, not even the gifted analyst Tilly Bradshaw could break it. He’ll tell you how the man’s murder was connected to tragedy that happened fifteen years earlier when a young girl massacred her entire family.

And finally, he’ll tell you about the Mercy Chair. And why people would rather kill themselves than talk about it.

Poe hopes you’ve been listening closely. Because in this story, nothing is as it seems . . .

Ticket only:   £12 (includes £5 off purchase of one book at the event)
Ticket and book (RRP £20):    £22

Please note that this book will be available for you to collect at the event. At the checkout, if you choose the book and ticket option, please don’t choose to have the book posted to you.
