SHETLAND TEA & MURDER MYSTERY WITH ANN CLEEVES
Fri 14 October 2016, 14:00 – 16:00 BST
Join us for a Shetland Afternoon Tea with award winning crime writer Ann Cleeves as she talks about her latest Shetland novel, Cold Earth, and sets a special Shetland murder mystery for you to solve!
Cold Earth is the seventh book in Ann Cleeves' Shetland series. In the dark days of a Shetland winter, torrential rain triggers a landslide that crosses the main Lerwick-Sumburgh road and sweeps down to the sea. At the burial of his old friend Magnus Tait, Jimmy Perez watches the flood of mud and peaty water smash through a croft house in its path. Everyone thinks the croft is uninhabited, but in the wreckage he finds the body of a dark-haired woman wearing a red silk dress. In his mind, she shares his Mediterranean ancestry and soon he becomes obsessed with tracing her identity. Then it emerges that she was already dead before the landslide hit the house. Perez knows he must find out who she was, and how she died.
The BBC has announced that there will be a fourth series of Shetland, the popular BBC One drama inspired by Ann's Shetland novels. Douglas Henshall returns as DI Jimmy Perez, with other regular cast also returning. The six one-hour episodes will be broadcast early in 2017.
We look forward to welcoming Ann back to Oswestry for what should be an enjoyable afternoon in the company of the Queen of Crime!
NB The event starts at 2.00pm (doors open at 1.30pm)
Tickets: £10 plus booking fee if purchasing online. Includes Afternoon Tea. £5 of ticket price redeemable against a signed hardback copy of Cold Earth.
