Murderous Inspirations – with Cambridge University Library & the CWA

FREE ONLINE EVENT! Murderous Inspirations: Crime Novels that Inspire Crime Writers will take place on 4 June from 7-8pm. An online session co-hosted by Cambridge University Library and The Crime Writers’ Association. Crime writers Fiona Veitch Smith, Abir Mukherjee and Nadine Matheson will discuss seminal crime novels Murder Must Advertise, Gorky Park and Prime Suspect. We’ll be kept in line by the king of crime critics Barry Forshaw.

I’ll be going in to bat for Murder Must Advertise (a cricket reference for those who’ve read the book!) and talking about how Dorothy L. Sayers has influenced my own writing.
