The story of a young croupier that disappears seemingly without a trace, results in a chase through Birmingham, sprinkled with cameo appearances from Brummie pubs, landmarks and even Central Library librarian, Jackie Molloy, who kindly lent her assistance during the author’s research for the book.
The author has a strong connection to Birmingham, having lived and worked in Harborne for a number of years. The beautiful and historical Jewellery Quarter, and the secretive, subterranean Anchor Tunnels serve as the backdrop to lies, mistrust and some fatal consequences.
The Bride’s Trail launched in Birmingham on 24th August at the Grosvenor Casino Broadstreet, where guests enjoyed a champagne reception and a few choice readings from the book.
Drawing on her own experience in the corporate world, A.A. Abbott’s books feature characters that might be only too familiar to anyone who has ever had an office job, as well as some fast paced twists and turns.
The Bride’s Trail received a fantastic reception from guests, with many asking why Birmingham does not feature more in our books, film and TV – A.A. Abbott’s crime thrillers certainly seek to redress that balance!
