New book delves into the history of King's Lynn

A lawyer and Elvis impersonator has launched his second novel, set in and around King's Lynn, that is set to transport the reader into two parallel storylines set centuries apart.

Mark Fitch, who also heads up eight-piece Elvis tribute band The Blue Sueders, describes his expansive new book as "Lock Stock meets The Sixth Sense".

Due to the pandemic, Mr Fitch was forced to cancel his East Anglian book signing tour, so instead, he chose to launch The Treasury by creating a two-minute video showing some of the locations that feature in the book.

The video takes audiences on a tour of King's Lynn town centre and the banks of the River Nene as Mr Fitch delves into the legends and history that inspired his latest work.

Towards the end of his reign a desperate King John loses his entire baggage train of coins and jewels in the desolate East Anglian Fens. Eight centuries later, gangster Jimmy Pearce gets a shot at finding the often despised monarch’s treasure. Ruthless, aggressive and well connected, he leads a crew that knows no limits when it comes to obtaining the desired result.

But, before he can get his hands on the valuable prize he must deal with the expanse of bleak terrain, the RAF and then Rupert and his band of high society student vigilantes.

Two leaders, one prize. No-one wants to miss out on the largest haul in history, and that includes those no longer of this world. The Treasury is a violent and bloody rollercoaster heist, where the dead are as vital as the living.

You can buy The Treasury online now from Hornet Books, Amazon, or local book shops.
