Win a Signed Copy of Rose Wilding’s Crime Fiction Debut Speak of the Devil

Speak of the Devil, Rose Wilding
This expired on 22nd June 2023

Newcastle writer Rose Wilding has released one of the most hotly anticipated debuts of 2023 and we’re giving five lucky Living North readers the chance to win a signed copy

It’s New Year’s Eve in Newcastle 1999. Seven women stand in shock as a man’s severed head sits in the centre of the floor of a hotel room. Each of the women (the wife, the teenager, the ex, the journalist, the colleague, the friend, and the woman who raised him) could be the prime suspect, but they all swear they didn’t do it. In order to protect each other, they ned to figure out who is responsible before the police do – but time’s ticking. With themes of love and loyalty, Speak of the Devil explores the roles in which some women are cast in the lives of men and the fallout when they refuse to stay silent.

Speak of the Devil has already been reviewed by popular authors Trevor Wood, Louise Hare and Kate Rhodes, and on 22nd June Rose will be in conversation with Ann Cleeves at The Biscuit Factory in her home city to celebrate the launch of the book. Speak of the Devil will be published by Baskerville in hardback on 22nd June, and copies will be available in all good bookshops. Tickets for Rose Wilding in Conversation with Ann Cleeves at The Biscuit Factory on the same day are available on
