Murder on the menu in Tuxford

stephen boothIf you’re a fan of crime and murder fiction, here’s an opportunity to meet award-winning local author Stephen Booth in person…

He will be appearing at Storytellers Books, 7 Eldon Street, Tuxford on Saturday 17 January for a public book signing, which will be followed by a ticketed talk and Q&A session.

Described by The Sunday Telegraph as ‘one of Britain’s best storytellers’, Stephen has written 13 best-sellers which have been published worldwide in 15 different languages.

A newspaper and magazine journalist for over 25 years, his first published book Black Dog hit the shelves in 2000 and was named by the London Evening Standard as one of the six best crime novels of the year – the only one on their list by a British author.
