Bookshop favourite returns with a stand-alone novel and reading
He’s forever in our bestsellers’ lists with his darkly comic, super-smart and zeitgeisty Jackson Lamb thriller series, but now Mick Herron is back with a brand new standalone novel and, obviously, a talk and signing at the London HQ of his fanclub, ie our shop.
This Is What Happened is the story of a perfectly unremarkable young woman whose predictable and pedestrian life makes her the perfect recruit for MI5…or, possibly, even darker forces. This being a Herron book, the prose crackles with tension as Maggie Barnes watches her life, her work and her world unravel.
Mick will be here to read from and answer questions about This Is What Happened at 7.30 16 July. Entry is free, but we do ask that you email or phone if you’d like to attend (0207 431 firstname.lastname@example.org)
