Bookable Space with Paul Waters

Love being read to? Hosted by novelist Yvonne Battle-Felton, this episode of Bookable Space features Paul Waters reading Blackwatertown.

About the book:

When maverick police sergeant Jolly Macken is banished to a sleepy 1950s Irish border village, he vows to find the killer of his brother – even if the murderer is in the police. But a lot can happen in a week. Over seven days Macken falls in love, uncovers dark family secrets, accidentally starts a war, is hailed a hero and branded a traitor. When Blackwatertown explodes into violence, who can he trust? And is betrayal the only way to survive?
