Cambridgeshire crime writers Nicola Upson and Mandy Morton present Double Murder at the Ely Place library at 2pm on Tuesday, February 25.

Josephine Tey, who lived from 1896-1952, was a pseudonym used by Elizabeth MacKintosh, a Scottish author best remembered for her mystery novels. She also wrote plays under the name Gordon Daviot and was one of the leading authors of Britain’s age of crime-writing.

Nicola is the recipient of an Escalator Award from the Arts Council England.

Mandy began her professional life as a musician and more recently has worked as a freelance arts journalist for national and local radio, specialising in making music and theatre documentary.

In Double Murder Nicola and Mandy will discuss their research and the way their writing comes together.

Tickets are £5 from the library or call 0345045 5225 for more information.
