Heffers Bookstore in Cambridge Announce launch parties

Dates for your diary - Launch parties at 6.30pm:

July 9th: Emily Winslow’s debut Cambridge-set mystery features American students Polly and Liv who both fall for the same charming graduate student. Then he disappears. Told through five narrators whose personal obsessions limit what each of them sees, The Whole World is the story of the desperation and malice that take them by surprise while they're all looking elsewhere.

July 12th: Nicola Upson’s Two For Sorrow is the third book in the Josephine Tey & Archie Penrose series after An Expert in Murder and An Angel with Two Faces. In London, 1903, two women are hanged in Holloway Prison for killing babies. More than thirty years later, their crimes resurface with shocking consequences… When Josephine Tey sets out to write a novel about Amelia Sach and Annie Walters, the notorious Finchley baby farmers, she can have little idea that the research for her book will be needed to help solve a modern-day killing.

July 14th: In Alison Bruce's second book of the Cambridge-set DC Gary Goodhew series after Cambridge Blue, all it takes is one small item on the regional news for Kimberly Guyver and Rachel Golinski to know that their checkered past is catching up with them. Within hours, Rachel's home is burning and Kimberly's young son Riley is missing.

Lunchtime Signings – 1.00pm

July 23rd: Jeffery Deaver will be signing copies of the latest Lincoln Rhyme, The Burning Wire.

July 6th: Peter Robinson will be signing copies of the latest Alan Banks, Bad Boy.
