At the turn of the century, M R James told ghost stories by candlelight to a handful of friends and scholars over supper after Christmas Eve’s carol service at King’s College. Twenty-five years later, they are being killed off one by one… Nicola Upson tells you about the seventh novel in her highly praised Josephine Tey series, while you feast on a delicious Afternoon Tea.


This event is part of Essex Book Festival’s Golden Age of Crime weekend in Southend-on-Sea. Click here for a list of all events taking place in Southend as part of the weekend.
