When the Killing Starts with RC Bridgestock

Best-selling crime duo Bob and Carol Bridgestock write as RC Bridgestock and are hosts of the murder mystery evening mentioned above, as well as a jazz night, tea and scones afternoon and many other events in West Yorkshire during June and July in a fabulous book tour. They will be launching their latest book, When the Killing Starts, published on June 30.

When the Killing Starts is the seventh book in the popular series featuring DI Jack Dylan. In fact the series is so popular, that the authors have been longlisted for the CWA Dagger in the Library.

Crime is a way of life for the Devlin brothers. Groomed at an early age and trained as criminals by local gangsters, the Devlin brothers get their thrill out of creating fear amongst their victims. They have a macabre pact; not to be arrested or caged. Brutality hits the town of Harrowfield when the scourge of the community is found dead, his companion slaughtered. The locals react with praise for the killers and meanwhile a fire turns up two bodies: executed. Armed police wait on DI Dylan’s judgement call … pressure is mounting.

Bob and Carol have advised on recent TV hits set in Northern England including BBC’s Happy Valley and ITV’s Scott & Bailey.
