Christina James, Thursday 19th October 7.15pm

Thu 19th Oct, 7:15pm

Christina is re-visiting Bookmark to talk about the sixth book in her locally set crime series featuring DI Yates.

A double murder is discovered in Spalding some days after it takes place. The victims are Tina Brackenbury, the foster mother of Grace Winter, a ten-year-old who escapes the killer because she is staying at her friend’s house at the time, and Tina’s infant daughter. Four years previously Grace was the sole survivor of the horrific massacre of her mother, grandparents and sister at Brocklesby Farm in North Lincolnshire. Is it a coincidence that both of Grace’s families have now been brutally killed? DI Yates and his team face a series of apparently impenetrable conundrums.

If you are unable to attend the evening event, Christina will be here on Monday 16th October from 11am to 3pm to sign copies of her book.

Sarah’s Pick: Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman


I began this book and thought, great, another quirky, smart, funny heroine. I laughed out loud at some of her unworldly comments. A few chapters later I realised that there was more to it than that. After another few chapters you realise that Eleanor has been horribly damaged by a difficult childhood.
