Award-winning actor, Richard Armitage, star of Spooks, The Hobbit, Captain America and Oceans 8, joins Manchester Literature Festival to discuss his page-turning debut thriller, Geneva, and his journey from performing characters on stage and screen to writing them.
Geneva has already won plaudits from top crime writers including Harlan Coben who described it as "an outstanding debut - ingenious, fast-paced and unpredictable".
In it, Nobel Prize-winning scientist Sarah Collier is showing the same signs of Alzheimer’s disease as her father. Invited to Geneva to endorse a controversial piece of new technology which could have the power to save her life, Sarah finds herself in the middle of a web of secrets, lies and controversy.
Who can she trust and will she make it out alive?
