An Evening with Will Dean
Tuesday 11th June, 7pm
The Rabbit Hole, Brigg

We're thrilled that award winning author, Will Dean, will be making a stop in Brigg as part of his UK Tour promoting his latest thriller, "The Chamber".

In conversation with Will, will be writer and co-founder of Hull Noir, Nick Quantrill. 

About the The Chamber:


On a boat heading out into the North Sea, Ellen Brooke steels herself to spend almost a month locked inside a hyperbaric chamber with five other divers. They are all being paid handsomely for this work - to be lowered each day inside a diving bell to the sea bed, taking it in turns to dive down and repair oil pipes that lie in the dark waters. It is a close knit team and it has to be: any error or loss of trust could be catastrophic.


All is going to plan until one of the divers is found unresponsive in his bunk. He hadn't left the chamber. It will take four more days of decompression, locked away together, before the hatch can be opened.

Four more days of bare steel, intrusive thoughts, and the constant struggle not to give way to panic. Mind games, exhaustion, suspicion, and, most of all, pressure. And if someone does unlock the door, everyone dies...

Tickets are free but should be reserved in advance


Will Dean grew up in the East Midlands and had lived in nine different villages before the age of eighteen. After studying law at the London School of Economics and working in London, he settled in rural Sweden where he built a house in a boggy clearing at the centre of a vast elk forest, and it’s from this base that he compulsively reads and writes.


His debut novel, Dark Pines, was selected for Zoe Ball’s Book Club, shortlisted for The Guardian’s Not the Booker prize, and was named a Daily Telegraph Book of the Year. Red Snow was published in January 2019 and won Best Independent Voice at the Amazon Publishing Readers' Awards, 2019. Black River was shortlisted for the Theakstons Old Peculiar Award in 2021. He is also the author of The Last One, First Born, The Last Thing to Burn, which was shortlisted for the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year. The Chamber will be released on 6th June 2024.
