From Jack Laidlaw to John Rebus, from Jane Tennyson to Harry Bosch, the police detective has long been the dark, beating heart of the crime novel. Plain clothes, plain speaking, plain old brilliant at catching the bad guys, they are what make the genre tick.
Mike Craven’s DS Washington Poe is a relative newcomer to the ranks of fictional detectives but his appearance in Black Summer has already seen him hailed as one of the best. Mari Hannah’s DCI David Stone and DS Frankie Oliver form a dream detecting team in The Scandal. Peter Robinson’s DCI Banks may have been promoted to Superintendent in Many Rivers to Cross, but he’s lost none of the brilliance that has endeared him to legions of fans.
The event takes place on Saturday 21st September from 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm.
