Diners are invited to become detectives at a murder mystery evening to celebrate the launch of a new book from crime authors RC Bridgestock.

Bob and Carol Bridgestock, of Halifax, who were consultants on the hit BBC drama “Happy Valley”, will be attending the black tie event at Prego, Brighouse, on Saturday, July 5.

To celebrate the launch of their fifth novel, “Reprobates”, the restaurant will be transformed into a murder scene and diners will follow the clues to solve the mystery of “whodunnit”.

Bob and Carol have a combined total of 50 years’ experience working with West Yorkshire Police.

Carol said: “Nothing that happens in the novel is different from how it would be in real life.

“It gives the reader the chance to sit on the shoulder of a detective and see exactly what happens as a murder case progresses.”

Tickets for the evening are priced £35 and are available from Prego in person or by calling 01484 715566.

“Reprobates” will be published on June 19.
