Disclaimer by Renee Knight.  When an intriguing novel appears on Catherine’s bedside table, she curls up in bed and begins to read. But as she turns the pages she is sickened to realize the story will reveal her darkest secret. A secret she thought no one else knew…

The Girl in the Red Coat by Kate Hamer.  She is the missing girl. But she doesn’t know she’s lost. While her mother desperately tries to find her, Carmel embarks on an extraordinary journey, one that will make her question who she is – and who she might become.

Renee Knight’s book Disclaimer is described by Lee Child as: “Sensationally good psychological suspense … exactly what a great thriller should be” . While Lucy Atkins of The Sunday Times describes Kate Hamer’s The Girl in the Red Coat as a “psychological thriller, slotting into the genre that has spawned recent hits such as Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl or Paula Hawkins’s The Girl on the Train. . .an engrossing read, to be devoured in a single lupine gulp”.

We hope you can join us for a thrilling evening!  The menu for the evening can be found on our Events page.
