We are excited to welcome back Crime Writer and Author Pauline Kirk. This afternoon Pauline will be talking about her new novel ‘Poetic Justice’.  This is the fourth in the DI Ambrose Mystery series written with Jo (her daughter) and set in the late 50’s/early sixties – a fascinating period which now seems an era ago. Each novel can stand alone but is set in and around a small English town, Chalk Heath, and features Paul Ambrose and his colleagues DS Winters, and WPC Meadows – a young woman who is determined to make a career in the Force despite the prejudices of the time. Poetic Justice also takes the reader to Guernsey, where memories of the German Occupation are still raw.

To give you a bit of a taste of the plot here is the blurb from the back cover:

When the judges of a poetry competition receive threatening packages, DI Ambrose and his team investigate.  Then two of the judges die in apparent accidents and the third narrowly escapes injury, thanks to WPC Meadows’ quick reactions.  Meadows’ own safety, however, is being threatened by a stalker. Is there a murderer in Chalk Heath? And who is stalking Meadows?

As Ambrose digs deeper, he uncovers war-time secrets that lead him to the island of Guernsey. But what is the connection between the poetry competition, Guernsey and two boys who have absconded from the local approved school?
