No Place to Hide – an author’s talk with JS Monroe

01/04/2023 @ 14:00 - 15:30


Join author J.S.Monroe as he talks about his new contemporary thriller, No Place To Hide, a loose retelling of Dr Faustus. Set in Cambridge in the 1990s and in London in the present day, the story charts a successful Cornish doctor’s dramatic fall from grace 24 years after he made a pact to cover up a horrific crime at university. The book concludes with a thrilling climax at the Minack theatre, live-streamed across the Dark Web…

Jon will speak about how he researched the book and came up with the idea, why he used Cornwall as a location, the process of writing, and then talk about writing in general, his own career, how publishing works, and the need for a thick skin!

J. S. Monroe read English at Cambridge, worked as a foreign correspondent in Delhi, and was Weekend editor of the Daily Telegraph in London before becoming a full- time writer. His psychological thriller Find Me became a bestseller in 2017, and, under his real name Jon Stock, he is also the author of five spy thrillers. Warner Brothers bought the film rights to the Dead Spy Running trilogy.
