A Night In with

Janice Hallett

13 February 2023 – 27 February 2023

Join best selling author of The Appeal and The Twyford CodeJanice Hallett, to celebrate the publication of her new novel The Mysterious Case of The Alperton Angels.

Everyone knows the story of the Alperton Angels: the murderous cult who brainwashed a young teenage girl into believing her newborn baby was the anti-Christ. When the girl came to her senses and called the police, the Angels committed suicide rather than face trial, and mother and baby disappeared into the care system.

Eighteen years later, true-crime author Amanda Bailey is writing a book on the Angels. The Alperton baby is finally old enough to be interviewed; if Amanda can find them, it will be the scoop of the year, and will save her flagging career. But rival author Oliver Menzies is just as smart, better connected, and is also on the baby’s trail.

As Amanda and Oliver are forced to collaborate, they realise that what everyone thinks they know about the Angels is wrong. The truth is something much darker and stranger than they’d ever imagined. And the story of the Alperton Angels is far from over...

In conversation for this unique virtual event, Janice will explore the process of building the tricksy puzzle at the centre of the book alongside all the unique and complex characters that feature. The Mysterious Case of the Alperton Angels and this event are sure to be a hit for anyone who is a fan of mind-bending twists and expertly constructed mysteries. Don’t miss it!
