Magherafelt crime writer Paul Charles launches new DI Christy Kennedy novel at No Alibis

Paul Charles will be reading from his new novel at No Alibis tomorrow

ROCK booking agent turned crime thriller writer Paul Charles will celebrate the release of his latest novel with a free reading at No Alibis in Belfast tomorrow night.

Departing Shadows is the 11th mystery in the Magherafelt-born author's critically acclaimed Christy Kennedy series. It's a deceit-laden tale of murder and intrigue which takes the dogged London DI from Camden Town to Brighton and back – as well as into the arms of the West End’s most celebrated up-and-coming actress, Nealey Dean.

When a death just outside a diplomatic compound finds Kennedy's investigation immediately stymied by the invocation of diplomatic privilege, his investigation brings him from London’s hallowed palaces of power to seedy lap-dance clubs. Along the way, Kennedy discovers just how far some people will go to protect their darkest secrets.

:: Paul Charles will be reading from the new Christy Kennedy novel on Thursday November 14 from 6pm at No Alibis on Belfast's Botanic Avenue. Free tickets are available now via
