Renowned author of ‘Murdoch Mysteries’ coming to Southampton

Bruce County Public Library invites you to spend an evening with Maureen Jennings, author of the “Murdoch Mysteries” books.  These novels provide the foundation and characters for the wildly popular “Murdoch Mysteries” television series.  Ms. Jennings will share her latest books (including “Let Darkness Bury the Dead” and “Heat Wave”) on Thursday, November 7, at 7:00pm at the Southampton Town Hall.


Both these latest novels are spun from the Murdoch series.  “Let Darkness Bury the Dead” jumps twenty years into the future and features William Murdoch’s son, Jack.  Set during WW1, the novel reveals a troubled relationship between father and son, whilst a mystery unfolds that possibly involves Jack.  In “Heat Wave”, readers are introduced to Ms. Jennings’s newest heroine, Charlotte Frayne.  The novel takes place in 1936 in Toronto where Charlotte works as a PI and comes to work with none other than Jack Murdoch.

In addition to writing the Murdoch books, Ms. Jennings also writes the Tom Tyler series, which provided the inspiration for “Bomb Girls” (a television series broadcast on Global Television in 2012/2013).

“Bruce County Public Library is thrilled to welcome award-winning author Maureen Jennings” says Booke McLean, Assistor Director. “This is an excellent opportunity for residents to hear from a preeminent Canadian crime novelist.”

This special evening is free to attend.  Please contact the Southampton Branch Library at 519-797-3586 to reserve a space.  Books will be available to purchase at the event courtesy of Fincher’s in Kincardine.
