Waterstones to host Trigger Mortis interactive experience

Waterstones Piccadilly will host a week-long interactive pop-up experience inspired by Anthony Horowitz’s new James Bond novel, Trigger Mortis (Orion).

The book is set in 1957, and Horowitz has used original material from Bond creator Ian Fleming.

Visitors to the Waterstones Piccadilly experience, which is open from 7th to 13th September, will be transported back to the late 1950s with walls, shelves and tables filled with books, artefacts, prints and memorabilia of the era.

Customers will be able to take part in a challenge, unlocking secret codes and solving clues, giving them access to a “secret antechamber where they will find themselves inside the pages of Trigger Mortis”.

Visitors will also be able to hear actor David Oyelowo's reading of Trigger Mortis.

On Monday 7th September the pop-up experience will open exclusively to ticket-holders attending the launch of Trigger Mortis at Waterstones Piccadilly, which will see Horowitz in conversation with journalist Mishal Hussain.

The space will then be open to the general public from Tuesday 8th September to Sunday 13th September. Visiting the pop-up is free, but to participate in the challenge a copy of the book must be purchased.

Trigger Mortis: Unlocking Bond is produced by the team behind Les Enfants Terribles' immersive show "Alice's Adventures Underground" and the creative director behind Secret Cinema's "Back to the Future".

Trigger Mortis is released on 8th September as a £18.99 hardback. Waterstones is selling an exclusive edition for the same price.
