The British author JJ Marsh (also known as Jill Prewett) was one of the three female entrepreneurs delivering an inspirational talk at the Powerhouse Event in Zurich on Tuesday and on Sunday 2nd December she will be at Orell Fuessli between 4pm and 5.30pm signing copies of her latest novel “Raw Material”, a crime thriller, which is set all over the UK from deserted Pembrokeshire beaches, through to the shadowy underpasses of North London and in to the remote Irish countryside. Jill’s first novel, “Behind Closed Doors”, based in Zurich, was the first novel in this detective series and both books would make ideal Christmas Presents.

Why not pop over to Orell Fuessli this Sunday to meet the author in person and to pick up a signed copy – and how about some Christmas shopping at the same time?  Don’t forget this Sunday is one of the Special Shopping Sundays in Zurich where the shops will be open from 11am – for more information on Sunday Shopping click here.
