Alis Hawkins’ Indie Bookshop Tour: Crickhowell

Bookish, Crickhowell : Alis Hawkins is celebrating National Crime Reading Month and the publication of In Two Minds, the second in her Teifi Valley Coroner historical crime series by visiting all of Wales’s independent bookshops.


Alis will be at Bookish, Crickhowell (winner of Welsh Bookseller of the Year ’19) who have invited her to speak at their new Throw Away (Your Television) Society Book Club. (if you wish to come, please advise the shop, so that they can cater for additional numbers).


Harry Probert-Lloyd, a young barrister forced home from London by encroaching blindness, has begun work as the acting coroner of Teifi Valley with solicitor’s clerk John Davies as his assistant.

When a faceless body is found on an isolated beach, Harry must lead the inquest. But his dogged pursuit of the truth begins to ruffle feathers. Especially when he decides to work alongside a local doctor with a dubious reputation and experimental theories considered radical and dangerous. Refusing to accept easy answers might not only jeopardise Harry’s chance to be elected coroner permanently but could, it seems, implicate his own family in a crime.
