Meet Longbourn author, Jo Baker for Tea and Scones and find out about her dark new thriller, The Body Lies.
When a young writer accepts a job at a university in the remote English countryside, it’s meant to be a fresh start, away from the scene of a violent assault she is desperate to forget.
But despite the distractions of her new life and the demands of single motherhood, her nerves continue to jangle. A vicious debate about violence against women inflames the tensions and mounting rivalries in her creative-writing class.
When a troubled student starts turning in chapters that blur the lines between fiction and reality, the professor recognizes herself as the main character in his book–and he has written her a horrific fate.
Advanced booking required – by 6th July
