KNUTSFORD Library is hosting a 1920s murder mystery evening on Wednesday, March 6.

The mystery offers participants the chance to show who is the best detective in Knutsford, and there will be book prizes for the three winners.

The event, titled ‘Murder at the Manor’, is written by award-winning crime writer Martin Edwards, who will host the evening.

The audience will listen to testimony from the suspects in the case, before deciding the identity of the murderer, the means and the motive.

While solutions are being judged, Martin Edwards will give a reader development talk on detective fiction.

“The event has been staged very successfully in venues around the country,” Martin said.

“I am delighted to have been asked to bring it to Knutsford.”

“We are really looking forward to the evening,’ said librarian Lise Hough.

“Martin Edwards is a popular speaker and writer, whose books are highly ranked in the national library lending lists, and we are expecting a very good audience.”

Tickets are £6, and the evening includes free wine and nibbles.
