Displaced

Irving Levy is a man with few roots and, now that he is terminally ill, is anxious to find anyone to whom he can leave his considerable property. When he learns that there may be more to the disappearance of his younger sister, who disappeared when she was a baby, he engages the services of Hakim and Arnold to investigate.


Unwittingly in mortal danger, the private detectives and Levy enter the world of Barking Park Fair and the secrets its brightly coloured attractions conceal. Secrets that lead them not just back to a crime committed in 1963, but to the chaotic world of post-war Europe where few people were what they seemed

 

Incorruptible

In the backstreets of Istanbul, a young woman’s body is found. Dumped in a dustbin and covered in cut flowers, she is the victim of a frenzied and vicious stabbing. Inspector Ikmen discovers that the woman was well known in Istanbul. Newspapers had been calling her the blessed woman; cured of cancer in a Christian miracle and a proclaimed messenger of the Virgin Mary.

 

These controversial claims had made her fierce enemies in the predominantly Islamic community and she had unwittingly stirred up divisions amongst the Christians of the city. But as Ikmen digs further into the case he uncovers powerful hatred and dark secrets lurking within her family. And to find the truth he must delve into a toxic world of fear, concealment and lies. The question is: was this a killing in the name of faith or does the answer lie somewhere else?

Pen to Print

Pen to Print is working to build a network of support for aspiring writers in Barking and Dagenham.

We identify local writing talent and provide them with opportunities to produce quality writing for publication.

The programme is funded until 2022 and features the Pen to Print Competitions:

  • The Book Challenge
  • The Poetry and Short Story Competition 
  • The Michael Feld Creative Writing Competition for Young People (7 to 14 years)

In addition to the main competitions, there are a series of on-going author events classes, workshops and other activity supported by established creative writing experts, authors and artists.

These events are open to everyone and are designed to inspire and encourage aspiring writers, as well as providing entertainment to the wider reading public.

Pen to Print has been made possible with funding as a National Portfolio Organisation from The Arts Council, England.
