Join us for the finale of the festival and help celebrate our fifth birthday in a fun hour of readings and crime-fiction-flavoured chat with local authors. Topping the bill is international bestselling Norfolk crime writer Elizabeth Haynes, with an exclusive look at her new book The Murder of Harriet Monckton. This is the ideal chance to meet and mingle with the writers, readers and fans who all make Noirwich such a special festival, over a local beer or two. There will be cake!

‘Haynes is one of those “just one more chapter”; all-night-reading writers. Her acute understanding of human nature under stress is delicious, her plotting ingenious and trustworthy.’ – Alex Marwood
