Best selling author and TV broadcaster Richard Madeley will be signing copies of his new novel The Night Book in WHSmith Harrogate on 6 July 2016 at 1pm.
From the author of the bestselling Some Day I’ll Find You, The Way You Look Tonight and Fathers & Sons comes a novel of dark suspense set in the Lake District where, beneath the inviting water of the lakes, danger and death are waiting.
The summer of 1976 was unprecedented in living memory. Days of blazing sunshine bled into weeks and months. In the Lake District, Cumbria’s mountains and valleys began to resemble a Grecian landscape. People swam in delightfully tropic waters to cool off. But, barely three feet below the surface, the temperature remained just a degree or so above freezing. As the summer blazed on, the drownings began…
What if someone wanted to take revenge? To remove an abusive, controlling partner from their life? When and where better to stage a murder and pass it off as an accidental drowning? But what if there is someone out there who does not accept such a verdict passed by the local coroner, who begins to quietly investigate the ‘tragedy’..?
Richard Madeley was born in 1956, and has been working in media since he was 16. He was the deputy editor of a local newspaper before moving to BBC Radio Carlisle where he worked as a reporter and producer.
From radio he moved to television, which led him to his future wife Judy Finnigan when they both presented a news programme on Granada TV. Their eponymous TV show ran for seven hugely successful years. In addition to co-creating the hugely popular Richard and Judy Book Club, exclusive to WHSmith, Richard has written two Sunday Times best-selling novels, Some Day I’ll Find You, and The Way You Look Tonight and the critically acclaimed biography Fathers and Sons.
