Welcome to Withering, a small town with a big problem in modern, matriarchal Britain. Here the women wear the trousers, while the men hold the handbags. Literally.

There’s a serial strangler on the loose and the bodies of teenage boys are piling up on maverick D.C.I. Jane Wayne’s patch. Wayne needs to catch ‘The Withering Wringer’, but it’s not going to be easy. Demoted for her inappropriate behaviour, she must take orders from a man—and not just any man—an ugly one. Still, at least she can rely on her drug stash from a recent police raid to keep her sane.

Shocking. Funny. Clever. A gender-bending, Agatha-Christie-meets-Chris-Brookmyre, mash-up. Simply genius. Triona Scully’s debut novel takes classic crime and turns it on its head with a deliciously absurd comic twist. 

Booked with Shirley Whiteside, Sunday 2 July at 2.00-3.00pm and repeated, Tuesday 4 July at 1.00pm.
