THE MURDER WALL is North Tyneside’s Summer Read 2012!


Each year, New Writing North, North Tyneside Council and Arts Council England choose one novel to promote throughout the summer, in order to engage the community through reading and discussion.  This year's selection is THE MURDER WALL by Mari Hannah and it will be available through libraries, council offices and throughout the North Tyneside area from July to September. 

The three month event will culminate on Thursday, 4th October at The Grand Hotel, Tynemouth for a 'Meet the Author' event with Mari Hannah, who will talk about her novel and meet with readers.

 'Brutal and engaging.  Mari Hannah writes with a sharp eye and a dark heart.' -- Peter James

'THE MURDER WALL is a police procedural par excellence and one of the most assured debuts I've ever read. Mari Hannah is a skilled plotter with a great eye for character and a wealth of personal experience in the field to draw on. Make no mistake, she is going to be huge.' --The Underground Book Club
