An evening with bestselling mystery thriller writer Robert Goddard
as part of HADCAF
Tuesday July 7th, The Town Hall, 8pm
Robert Goddard has written over twenty mystery thrillers – unprincipled chicanery; unsolved crimes; unforgiven betrayals; unforgotten jealousies: these are the sinews of his stories.They range across different times and places, springing from such contrasting roots as Liberal politics of the Edwardian period, the origins of the First World War and Irish neutrality during the Second, the invention of photography, the South Sea Bubble, the fate of the last ruling family of the Byzantine Empire and much, much more.
What they all have in common is the infinite capacity for intrigue and conspiracy in human nature – and the lengths to which some at least will go to combat them.
The ‘master of the clever twist’ will be talking about his books, writing career, and also offering advice to any would-be writers in the audience . His novels will be available to buy on the evening and the author will be happy to sign copies.
