In Conversation with Alan Carter, Thursday 25th May at 6.30pm at Beaufort Street Books
Alan Carter will be in conversation with Geraldine Blake at Beaufort Street Books on Thursday 25th May 2017, at 6.30pm - 8pm to discuss his new book - 'Marlborough Man'.
Best known for the Cato Kwong series, you won't want to miss this introduction to Nick Chester - a man on the run and in hiding on the shores of the Marlborough Sounds.
Tickets are $8.50 and include cheese and wine tasting.
About the book: Nick Chester is working as a sergeant for the Havelock police in the Marlborough Sound, at the top of New Zealand’s South Island. If the river isn’t flooded and the land hasn’t slipped, it’s paradise. Unless you are also hiding from a ruthless man with a grudge, in which case, remote beauty has its own kind of danger. In the last couple of weeks, two locals have vanished. Their bodies are found, but the Pied Piper is still at large.
Marlborough Man is a gripping story about the hunter and the hunted, and about what happens when evil takes hold in a small town.
Alan Carter was born in Sunderland, UK. He immigrated to Australia in 1991 and divides his time between his house near the beach in Fremantle and a hobby farm up a remote valley in New Zealand. He sometimes works as a television documentary director. In his spare time he follows a black line up and down the local swimming pool. He is the author of three Cato Kwong novels – Prime Cut, Getting Warmer and Bad Seed – and of a new novel set in New Zealand, Marlborough Man.
