Abingdon Library set for a night as a crime scene

Oxfordshire author Peter Tickler will be present to talk to library visitors and crime-writing buffs. The author of “Blood on the Marsh”, “Blood in Grandpont”, “Blood on the Cowley Road” and “The Modern Mercenary” will be at the library from 7:30pm.

The event is part of National Crime Reading Month and one of a number of events that Peter is attending during June to talk about his work. More information can be found at www.petertickler.co.uk

Peter lives in Abingdon and is a member of the Crime Writers’ Association.

Lynne Moores, Oxfordshire County Council’s Manager of Abingdon Library said: “I am guessing that this will be the first time that a subject like “Blood on the Cowley Road” has been discussed within Abingdon Library!

“The evening promises to be an interesting one for those interested in crime-writing and the bonus is that it is one of our local authors who’ll be the star attraction. I hope the event is well attended.”
