The Levels - debut novel launch with author, Helen Pendry


Pen’rallt Gallery Bookshop first opened its doors on 23 May 2011.

With this event, we’ll be celebrating our ninth birthday. Expect jollity.

One day in winter a military drone on a training flight hurtles out of the sky and smashes into a holiday park. A young mother living in a static caravan is killed instantly.

While all the initial reports suggest a tragic accident, Abby Hughes suspects the crash was a deliberate act of sabotage by a homeless man who made maps and hated war. Determined to find the truth, she has to contend with the powerful forces trying to bury it.

THE LEVELS is published by PARTHIAN
