Author’s book signing

AN internationally-renowned Scarborough author will be signing copies of his latest chilling instalment in the town tomorrow.

Bill Kitson will be at Waterstone’s, in Westborough, between 1pm and 3pm to meet fans and chat about his new dark offering, Altered Egos.

The new book is a revenge-fuelled tale following detective Mike Nash as he pieces together a suspicious house fire, the bizarre murder of a young drug addict and disappearance of a scientist’s daughter.

Incorporating a sinister character trained to kill and influenced by drugs, the plot also includes the destruction of a laboratory previously attacked by animal right activists.

Mr Kitson, a former chairman and current member of Scarborough Writers’ Circle, was nominated for the Ian Fleming Steel Dagger title by the Crime Writers’ Association for the book.

His previous novels Depth of Despair, Chosen and Minds That Hate also earned plaudits from scores of critics from across Europe.
