Forum Books Presents Mari Hannah

Venue: Newton and Bywell Community Hall, Newton, NE43 7UL


Corbridge crime sensation Mari Hannah returns with a gripping tale of crime, revenge and scandal!

As Mari’s eleventh novel and the third in the acclaimed Stone and Oliver series, we’re celebrating the official launch of THE SCANDAL this March and we’d love you to join us.

Some secrets are best kept hidden…

When a young man is found stabbed to death in a side street in Newcastle city centre in the run up to Christmas, it looks like a botched robbery to DCI David Stone. But when DS Frankie Oliver arrives at the crime scene, she gets a bit more than she bargained for. 

She IDs the victim as Herald court reporter, thirty-two-year old Chris Adams, a man she’s known since they were kids. With no eyewitnesses, the MIT are stumped. They discover that when Adams went out, never to return, he was working on a scoop that was about to make his name. But what was the story he was investigating? And who was trying to cover it up?

As detectives battle to solve the case, they uncover a link to a missing woman that turns the investigation on its head. The exposé has put more than Adams’ life in danger. And it’s not over yet.

A new book from Mari is always a reason to celebrate, and with such a gripping, sharp and fast-paced crime thriller it’s bound to be a brilliant evening!
