Author Talk with Crime Author JS Monroe

6 October, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Join author JS Monroe at Thatcham Bowling Club as he talks about his new contemporary thriller, ‘No Place To Hide’, a loose retelling of Christopher Marlowe’s ‘Dr Faustus’. Set in Cambridge in the 1990s and in London in the present day, the story charts a successful Cornish doctor’s dramatic fall from grace 24 years after he made a pact to cover up a horrific crime at university. The book concludes with a thrilling climax at the incredible Minack cliff-top theatre, live-streamed across the Dark Web.

Jon will speak about how he researched the book and came up with the idea, why he used Cornwall as a location, the process of writing, and then talk about writing in general, his own career, how publishing works, and the need for a thick skin!

J. S. Monroe read English at Cambridge, worked as a foreign correspondent in Delhi, and was Weekend editor of the Daily Telegraph in London before becoming a full- time writer. His psychological thriller Find Me became a bestseller in 2017, and, under his real name Jon Stock, he is also the author of five spy thrillers.

Tickets are £5 including all booking fees.
