Event Description

Matt Baylis, author of the best recently published  book set in our local area Death at the Palace  will be in conversation at Big Green Bookshop to mark the publication of his latest Novel "The Tottenham Outrage" - the second in his crime series featuring Rex Tracey, a (very) local newspaper reporter.

The book is named after a real incident almost a century ago - The Tottenham Outrage was an armed robbery and double murder that took place in January 1909. On his Twitter feed Matt promises the new book "has a fictional reimagining of the facts of 1909 at its heart"

In the novel a family of Hasidic Jews dies suddenly while picnicking in Finsbury Park, and the finger is quickly pointed at a gang of Islamist youths. Too quickly, thinks local reporter Rex Tracey. Rex starts to investigate. But when his long-time colleague and friend is also accused of murder, the sleuthing journalist with a fondness for Polish lager and dry one-liners is catapulted out of his depth, into a disturbing world of religious fanaticism, false prophets and century-old secrets.

I've had the pleasure of an advance read of the book and it's great. Will review soon but I recommend this talk - Matt has great affection for and understanding of Haringey.
