Mapperley publisher Porchester Press is offering free delivery on orders of suspense thriller ‘The Showman’.
Set in Nottingham during two week in 1978, the short introduction of novel reads:
A number of deaths occur.
All are sudden and bizarre, but none are treated as suspicious.
Were the police missing a vital link?
What relevance was the presence of an American tourist?
Who else is under threat and why?
With the death toll rising, someone needs to take responsibility.
All orders of the paperback version (between now and Christmas) will be delivered free of charge to addresses in postcodes NG3-5. There is also an option for the book to be gift wrapped and delivered as a present.
The proprietor of Porchester Press, Alan Dawson says:
Christmas is always a popular time for book purchases. They make a great gift as they tend to be chosen with thought. They are also a convenient size to post. The Showman story has resonated with Nottingham readers and particularly expats who remember Nottingham in the 1970s.
Mapperley People followers know that social media has helped create an interest in nostalgic local history. The sharing of photographs and memories of events and locations is a popular way for people to connect.
The events depicted in novel centre around locations that such as the Goose Fair and the former Evening Post offices on Forman Street. Even the artwork for the cover was created by local illustrator Alice Peake.
