Launch of MW Craven’s Fifth Washington Poe novel

Gold Dagger-winner M W Craven is launching The Botanist, the fifth Washington Poe novel, at the Old Fire Station, Carlisle on 1 June 2022. Starts at 7pm, bar opens at 6.30.

‘Rattling along at breakneck speed, the latest Poe and Tilly outing sees the pair tackle not one but a sequence of baffling locked room mysteries. All the series hallmarks are here: a fiendish villain, a twisty chase, and, slap bang in the middle of it all, the monumental figure of Washington Poe, acerbic, unstoppable, and positively rubbing his hands with glee. A sinful treat’ – Vaseem Khan
