A crime writer will be giving fans a chance to get a signed copy of his latest book at an event in Bury this weekend.

Author Michael Knaggs, who lives in Simister, will appear at WHSmith at the Mill Gate Shopping Centre on Saturday, December 9 from 10.30am to 4pm, to sign copies of his thriller, The Blue Men.

Michael will also sign copies of his three previous books, Catalyst, Heaven’s Door and Lost souls, all of which make up the original Hotel St Kilda trilogy.

The series follows MP Tom Brown, who exploits the killing of three gang members for his own political advancement.

The latest book sees Tom, now a disgraced former Home Secretary, missing and presumed drowned until a photograph taken in Scotland by a journalist raises doubts about his disappearance.
