Book Launch: THE ICE SHROUD by Gordon Ell
Ell's passion for the outdoors shines through in his first crime tale, which is set in the majestic Southern Lakes region of New Zealand. I'm looking forward to reading THE ICE SHROUD as I've met Ell several times at books events over the past few years. He's had such a terrific career publishing numerous books about our country's natural and historic heritage, it was quite delightful to see how enthusiastic he was about making a move into crime fiction, something else he loved.
Here's the blurb:
Edie is dead, frozen in an alpine torrent, murdered. A crime of passion, or is something darker troubling her former lovers? Detective Sergeant Buchan keeps his own secret while probing the private lives of others among the mountains of New Zealand's spectacular Southern Lakes. Something, it seems, is rotten in the alpine paradise.
The Friends of Takapuna Library and Bush Press invite booklovers to a free event to celebrate the release of Gordon Ell's first crime novel, THE ICE SHROUD, on the evening of Wednesday 2 March 2016.
Level 1, Takapuna Library, The Strand, Takapuna.
Light refreshments will be served from 6pm. The official launch will be at 6.30pm. Copies of THE ICE SHROUD will be available for purchase and signing.
