An Evening of Manchester Crime

Urmston Bookshop presents two thrilling crime authors who write about the streets you know… Tuesday 25th April at 7pm

Marnie Riches will be here to talk about her gripping, gritty journey through Manchester’s meanest streets.  A must-read for all fans of Martina Cole and Kimberley Chambers, Born Bad has already been nominated for a CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger!

In Neil White’s thrilling Parker Brothers trilogy, Joe Parker is a Manchester defence lawyer and Sam Parker is a Manchester detective so get ready for a “thrilling mixture of a legal thriller and police procedural”.  Neil himself is a criminal lawyer and a crime fiction writer with nine books published so far.

Tickets cost £3.00 and this includes a glass of wine and is redeemable against the cost of a book on the evening.

Manchester City and England Legend, David White at Urmston Bookshop

David is coming to Urmston Bookshop on Saturday 29th* April at 2pm for a question and answer session and to sign copies of his book Shades of Blue.

Shades of Blue tells the story of David’s extraordinary life: his passion for football, the drama of his games and his fight to outrun the shadow of the devastating abuse he suffered by his former coach.  Having spent years feeling that he had to conceal his secret in order to protect his father and his football career, it is only now that David has felt able to give a full and honest account of his life.

This event is free, contact us at Urmston Bookshop if you need any further information.
