Murder in a time of austerity

Speaker:

Highly acclaimed, bestselling historical novelist Sara Sheridan talks about the post-War Austerity era, how it captured her imagination and why, from rationing, to the role of women and the birth of the swinging 60s.

In Brighton Belle, set shortly after the end of WWII, Mirabelle Bevan (recently retired from the British Secret Service) thinks her skills are no longer required but soon discovers that her specialist knowledge is vital and follows a mysterious trail of gold sovereigns, betting scams and corpses to a dark corner of Austerity Britain.

In the sequel, London Calling, Bevan is again hot on the trail, this time in London’s 1950s underworld of smoky night clubs, smart cars and lethal cocktails.
