Summer Crime Night: The Missing

It’s no secret that we love a good crime novel and psychological thriller here at Griffin Books. So we’re very excited to announce the return of our Summer Crime Night this July. We have not one, not two, but THREE fabulous authors on our panel, all with gripping new books featuring missing people.

A woman is seen on CCTV entering a dead-end alley but never emerges; a family completely disappear from their dinghy in the middle of a lake; a girl goes missing while partying at a music festival deep in the Welsh countryside.

Join Gillian McAllisterTim Weaver and Louise Mumford for an evening that is guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat.

We’re expecting this to be a very popular event, so book early to avoid disappointment!

Her books have been selected for the Radio 2 Book Club, Reese’s Book Club, the Richard & Judy Book Club, and have been published in thirty-eight languages.
