Hay Festival


Thomas Harding talks to Philippe Sands


Tuesday 29 May 2018, 1pm Venue: Baillie Gifford Stage

A ground-breaking examination of a terrifying murder and its aftermath by the bestselling author of Hanns and Rudolf and The House by the Lake. The trial of the Chinese dissident accused of murdering Allan Chappelow was the first in modern British history to be held ‘in camera’ – closed, carefully controlled, secret. Wang Yam was found guilty but has always protested his innocence. “Meticulous and gripping – a thriller that disturbs for revelations about a singular act of murder, and the national security state which we call home” –Philippe Sands.

Price: £8.00
