Penarth’s independent bookshop, Griffin Books, will host crime author Matt Johnson at Waterloo Tea, Stanwell Road, on Thursday the 10th of October at 7:30pm.

Whilst undergoing treatment for PTSD, Matt was encourage by his counsellor to write about his career and his experience of murders, shootings and terrorism. He used his detailed knowledge and recollections to create ‘The Robert Finlay Trilogy’, which has been described by many readers as a fast-paced, exciting and authentic tale of modern-day policing and terrorism.
