Join us as we celebrate the publication of book two in Andy Griffee’s crime series, set on Britain’s waterways!
Jack Johnson has a talent for trouble – wherever he goes on his narrowboat, it seems to follow him. Moored up on the River Avon in the beautiful Georgian surroundings of Bath, he’s working at the local paper when a prominent magistrate and heritage campaigner is attacked and drowned. Against his wishes, Jack is pulled into the investigation by his ambitious editor who wants the scoop. Jack and his friend, the war widow, Nina, have also been drawn into another struggle, one between the local boating community and luxury-property developers.
Andy Griffee is an ex BBC journalist who began his career at the Bath evening Chronicle. Whilst a heart-stopping crime-read, ‘River Rats’ also draws on real-life tensions facing the canal boat community.
