Tim McInnerny reads at National Liberal Club event for debut thriller

Muswell Press directors Sarah and Kate Beal held their first live book launch since lockdown at the National Liberal Club, where they celebrated publication of Heidi Amsinck's debut thriller My Name Is Jensen

The party (also broadcast online) featured readings by actor Tim McInnerny, the voice of the audiobook edition. Other guests included fellow Muswell Press authors Toby Faber, David Reynolds, and Dugald Bruce-Lockhart, as well as Radio 4 producer Jeremy Osbourne.

My Name Is Jensen, which the Danish-born Amsinck wrote in English, is set in her home city, Copenhagen, where a serial killer is slaughtering homeless people. Rights have gone to a Danish publisher.

Amsinck's first public event will be on Saturday 18 September at the Bloody Scotland International Crime Writing Festival.
