David Mark.

Page turning novels, gripping plotlines and fast paced narratives have become synonymous with the critically acclaimed work of crime writer David Mark.

And now the best–selling author is plotting a visit to Rochdale on Saturday, 22 April 2017 to discuss his latest work, Cruel Mercy, in the lead up to World Book Night.

David has built up a loyal readership for his Detective Sergeant Aector McAvoy stories. His 2013 novel Dark Winter was selected for the Harrogate ‘New Blood’ panel, as well as being a Richard & Judy book club pick and a Sunday Times bestseller.

It will be David’s second visit to the borough, following a well-received appearance at the 2016 Rochdale Literature and Ideas Festival.

Tickets for the event which is from 6pm-7pm at Touchstones Rochdale are just £3, including light refreshments. For more information and to book tickets see World Book Night Eve with David Mark.

Councillor Janet Emsley, the council’s cabinet member for culture, said: “David was a big hit when he spoke at the Literature and Ideas Festival, so it’s great to welcome him back to the borough.

“The council is proud to be playing its part in the lead up to World Book Night, which brings together millions of literature lovers, united in a thirst for reading and learning.”

This year’s Rochdale Literature and Ideas Festival runs from Tuesday 17 to Monday, 23 October 2017. Further information can be found at Rochdale Literature Festival
