Castleford Heritage Trust is delighted to welcome acclaimed Leeds author Chris Nickson to Queen's Mill to celebrate World Book Night.

Speaking about his brand new book 'The Molten City', Chris stands firmly 'in the front ranks of historical mystery writers'.

Leeds, September 1908. There’s going to be a riot. Detective Superintendent Tom Harper can feel it. Herbert Asquith, the prime minster, is due to speak in the city. The suffragettes and the unemployed men will be out in the streets in protest. It’s Harper’s responsibility to keep order. Can he do it? Harper has also received an anonymous letter claiming that a young boy called Andrew Sharp was stolen from his family fourteen years before. The file is worryingly thin. It ought to have been bulging. A missing child should have been headline news. Why was Andrew’s disappearance ignored? Determined to uncover the truth about Andrew Sharp and bring the boy some justice, Harper is drawn deep into the dark underworld of child-snatching, corruption and murder as Leeds becomes a molten, rioting city.

Tickets are just £5 and includes a glass of wine. Come and have a fascinating evening and support local writers and the Mill.
