In 2014, Sophie Hannah brought back Hercule Poirot with her hugely successful The Monogram Murders – but it’s not just Agatha Christie’s characters we’re reading about…
Andrew Wilson’s A Talent For Murder places Christie herself at the heart of the mystery, reimagining ten lost days from the best selling-author’s life.
Nicola Upson turns the action on another classic crime writer in Nine Lessons, the latest in her popular series fictionalising the life of Josephine Tey.
Join all three novelists as they discuss what it is about this golden era of crime that continues to captivate readers and authors alike.
