An exciting last-minute addition to our autumn schedule, we are thrilled to present an evening with Peter James, who will talk about his suspenseful new ghost story ‘The House on Cold Hill’ at Wickwoods Country Club on Tuesday 6th October at 7.30 pm.
Before he began his best-selling crime-writing career, Peter wrote a few novels in the horror genre, and this chilling haunted house story sees him returning to the genre in fine form, managing to be Gothic yet contemporary, while piling on the tension and creepiness! The book is inspired by a house Peter himself once lived in, and is set in and around Henfield, so Wickwoods Country Club, situated within beautiful woodlands close to Henfield, is the perfect venue!
Tickets are £15 to include a hardback copy of the book, which Peter will be happy to sign after his talk.
The event is open to non-Wickwoods members!
