An evening with Joanna Wallace

12 October @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

We’re very excited to celebrate the publication of YOU’D LOOK BETTER AS A GHOST with Joanna Wallace!

Join us on Thursday 12 October, 7pm when we welcome Joanna Wallace to West Kirby, to celebrate the publication of her debut novel, YOU’D LOOK BETTER AS A GHOST.

Joana will be reading from, and disccussing the book, before answering questions from the audience and signing copies of YOU’D LOOK BETTER AS A GHOST.


‘Refreshingly original and laugh-out-loud funny’ – CLARE MACKINTOSH

‘Delightfully shocking and irreverently funny’ – JANICE HALLETT

Dexter meets Killing Eve in this superb thriller, perfect for fans of How To Kill Your Family and My Sister, the Serial Killer.

A darkly funny and compulsive thriller, introducing your new favourite part-time serial killer.

I have a gift. I see people as ghosts before they die.

Of course, it helps that I’m the one killing them.

The night after her father’s funeral, Claire meets Lucas in a bar. Lucas doesn’t know it, but it’s not a chance meeting. One thoughtless mistyped email has put him in the crosshairs of an extremely put-out serial killer. But even before they make eye contact, before Claire lets him buy her a drink, before she takes him home and carves him up into little pieces, something about that night is very wrong. Because someone is watching Claire. Someone who is about to discover her murderous little hobby.

The thing is, it’s not sensible to tangle with a part-time serial killer, even one who is distracted by attending a weekly bereavement support group and trying to get her art career off the ground. Claire will do anything to keep her secret hidden – not to mention the bodies buried in her garden. Let the games begin…


Joanna Wallace worked as a solicitor until an auto-immune condition took away some of her sight. She now works as a listening volunteer and trainer for her local branch of The Samaritans, and runs a family business with her husband. She was partly inspired to write YOU’D LOOK BETTER AS A GHOST following her father’s diagnosis of early onset dementia.
