We have three good reasons to discover Ann Cleeves at Mostly Books this summer.
Firstly, Ann looks poised to be the latest big name in crime fiction and we are delighted that she will be visiting us at Mostly Books in August. Her successful Vera Stanhope series has already made her a household name since being televised with Brenda Blethyn in the title role.
In September Ann Cleeves's Shetland series will be making its television debut. This new murder-mystery series is set against the stunning Scottish backdrop of the Shetland Isles and centres on Detective Jimmy Perez (played by Douglas Henshall). Perez is recently divorced, a native Shetlander who has returned home after a long spell away. His bone-dry sense of humour and an idealistic desire to protect his beloved Shetland Isles from inevitable change make him a fascinating detective to watch at work.
If you want to discover these books before seeing them on the television, come along and meet Ann when she comes to Mostly Books on Wednesday, 15th August at 7.30pm.
The event takes place in the bookshop, interest will be strong and numbers will be limited - so please email or tweet to reserve a ticket, or call 01235 525880. Ticket price £4 - to include a glass of wine.
And finally, if you want to give one of Ann's books a try before the meeting, we are offering 'Raven Black' for 99p if you spend more than £20 this Summer.
