Crime Files Rooftop Book Club @RooftopBookClub @ellygriffiths @SabineDurrant @RachelAbbott #CrimeFiction @HodderBooks @CrimeFilesBooks








Come along to an evening of thrills and chills atop one of London’s most scenic rooftops. 

Join Hodder & Stoughton for crime and wine on their stunning riverside rooftop, for London’s only Rooftop Book Club in the company of three very special authors: Rachel Abbott, Elly Griffiths and Sabine Durrant. Presenting three of 2018’s most talked-about crime novels, this is a night of twists and turns, bought to you in partnership with CrimeFiles.
Rachel Abbott is the No 1 bestselling author of six psychological thrillers, including ONLY THE INNOCENT and COME A LITTLE CLOSER. In November she is back with a brand new book and the start to a new crime series with her brilliantly twisty and atmospheric AND SO IT BEGINS. Join Sergeant Stephanie King, who is called out to the imposing, clifftop house, owned by famous photographer Marcus North, to find two people, covered in blood in a bedroom lit by candlelight, one dead, one alive. Then travel back in time to find out what happened – who is dead? And how do Cleo, Marcus’s sister, and Evie, his new girlfriend, fit into everything? Rachel Abbott is much loved by readers and has over 8,000 5* reviews on Amazon – if you haven’t discovered her before, now is the time.
Sabine Durrant, Sunday Times bestselling author of LIE WITH ME, is back with a sensational new thriller, TAKE ME IN. A hot beach. A young family on holiday. A fatal moment of inattention. When Tess and Marcus embark on their summer holdiday they find it difficult to shake the strains, stress and secrets that are taking their toll on their relationship. And then a stranger on the beach saves their only son’s life and they know they owe Dave Jepsom more than they can ever repay. And now Dave Jepsom is in their lives. Yet even as he is walking from the sea with their son in his arms, there is something about him that makes them uneasy. Dave Jepsom, with his muscles, his pale eyes, his expressionless face. He saved their child. How can they ever repay him? Especially as what he seems to want in return is everything. He’s in the streets they walk down. He’s at the office where they work. He’s at their front door, leaning on the bell… If only they could go back. Back to when the lies were still hidden. Before the holiday, before the beach, before the moment that changed everything. Before Dave. But it’s never how it starts that matters. It’s always how it ends.
Elly Griffiths, the bestselling author of the Dr Ruth Galloway mysteries, brings us her first standalone novel THE STRANGER DIARIES, a gripping contemporary Gothic thriller. Clare Cassidy is no stranger to murder. As a literature teacher specialising in the Gothic writer RM Holland, she teaches a short course on it every year. Then Clare's life and work collide tragically when one of her colleagues is found dead, a line from an RM Holland story by her body. The investigating police detective is convinced the writer's works somehow hold the key to the case. Not knowing who to trust, and afraid that the killer is someone she knows, Clare confides her darkest suspicions and fears about the case to her journal. Then one day she notices some other writing in the diary. Writing that isn't hers...
This fantastic evening will be chaired by Fabulous magazine journalist Claire Frost, as she interviews the authors and then opens up to questions from the audience.
