Join Kate Rhodes at Heffers as she celebrates publication of her new novel DEVIL’S TABLE with crime fiction expert Barry Forshaw


Following on from Hell Bay, Ruin Beach, Burnt Island and Pulpit Rock, Devil’s Table is the fifth book in Kate Rhodes’ addictive series of books set on the windswept Scilly Isles – and you’re invited to join her at Heffers on publication day to celebrate its release.

St Martin’s is shrouded in bitterly cold fog when Jade Minear and her twin brother, Ethan, are attacked in a field, late at night. Ethan manages to return home but the shocking events of Jade’s disappearance have rendered him mute. On a small island where there are few places a child can hide, DI Ben Kitto must battle the elements to search for Jade. When his investigation reveals that the Minear family have many enemies on the island, Kitto grows increasingly worried that Jade is in danger. Meanwhile, someone on the island knows exactly where the girl is. Someone with a deep-seated hatred of Jade’s family. To find the truth, Kitto must investigate the lives of the people he has known all of his life. Because one of them is lying – and it isn’t long until a body is found . . .

Kate will be in conversation with Barry Forshaw, crime fiction critic extraordinaire and as well as talking about her own book, Kate will be talking about Barry’s new book Simenon: The Man, The Books, The Films
