Celebrate the opening of Ingleby Barwick Library with two north east thriller writers.

Engineer by day, writer by night – Fiona Erskine’s first thriller, The Chemical Detective was published in 2019 featuring Dr Jaq Silver. Skier, scientist, international jet-setter, explosives expert – she blows things up to keep people safe. The Chemical Reaction was published in 2020 with The Chemical Cocktail due in 2022.
Durham based writer and journalist Judith O’Reilly’s action adventure thrillers have been described as ‘a sheer delight’ by David Baldacci. Featuring ex-assassin and spy for hire Michael North, Killing State and Curse the Day have both been Mail on Sunday Thriller of the Week.
Books will be available to buy from Drake the Bookshop.
