Author Talk – Emma Healey

 Emma Healey ‘Whistle in the Dark’

 Monday 21st, 10.30am

We are thrilled to welcome Emma Healey, author of the Costa Award winning ‘Elizabeth is Missing’, back to Red Lion Books to talk about her new novel ‘Whistle in the Dark’

About the book.

How do you rescue someone who has already been found? Jen’s fifteen-year-old daughter goes missing for four agonizing days. When Lana is found, unharmed, in the middle of the desolate countryside, everyone thinks the worst is over.

But Lana refuses to tell anyone what happened, and the police think the case is closed. The once-happy, loving family returns to London, where things start to fall apart. Lana begins acting strangely: refusing to go to school and sleeping with the light on.

With her daughter increasingly becoming a stranger, Jen is sure the answer lies in those four missing days. But will Lana ever reveal what happened?’ This novel is a beautiful and rare thing’ Kate Hamer ‘Healey is a natural storyteller’ Claire Fuller’ I don’t know anyone else who writes like this’ Jane Corry

We are still finalising details of this event. It is in conjunction with the DAYTIME BOOK CLUB and charges may apply.
