The Stranger Diaries with Elly Griffiths

We are delighted to welcome Elly Griffiths back to Cambridge. The 2016 winner of the CWA Dagger in the Library will speak on her new standalone gothic thriller, The Stranger Diaries.

Clare Cassidy is no stranger to murder. As a literature teacher specialising in the Gothic writer RM Holland, she teaches a short course on it every year. Then Clare's life and work collide tragically when one of her colleagues is found dead, a line from an RM Holland story by her body. The investigating police detective is convinced the writer's works somehow hold the key to the case. Not knowing who to trust, Clare confides her darkest suspicions and fears about the case to her journal. Then one day she notices some other writing in the diary. Writing that isn't hers...

Elly Griffiths is also the author of the bestselling Dr Ruth Galloway novels. The series has won the CWA Dagger in the Library, and has been shortlisted three times for the Theakston's Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year. Her Stephens and Mephisto series is based in 1950s Brighton. Don't miss this opportunity to hear from her in the intimate setting of Heffers bookshop!
