One of our best loved radio presenters is appearing at TAL to talk about his debut pacey modern-day thriller with a political edge, Knife Edge.


It is 6.45am. A sweltering London rush hour. And in the last 27 minutes, seven people have been murdered.  In a series of coordinated attacks, seven men and women across London have been targeted.   For journalist Famie Madden, the horror unfolds as she arrives for the morning shift.  The victims have one thing in common, they make up the investigation team at the news agency where Famie works…………..


A frantic investigation leads Famie to a terror plot she could never have imagined, revealing deception all around her.
