Cambridge Festival of Ideas logo

Crime fiction is now the most popular genre of novel, with whole sections given over to it in bookshops. Crime dramas on TV, often based on book series, are a staple of the TV schedules. What makes it so popular? And how do writers bring off a sense of violence, threat and suspense? Four published crime and psychological thriller writers discuss these issues, followed by a Q&A and book signing.

Sunday Times bestselling author B.A. Paris has published three psychological thrillers. Her most recent book is Bring Me Back. Alison Bruce is the author of the Gary Goodhew series of Cambridge crime novels. Her most recent book is the psychological thriller I Did It For Us. Nicola Upson is the author of the Josephine Tey series set in 1930s Cambridge and East Anglia. Her most recent book is Nine Lessons. Mick Finlay is the author of the Arrowood series set in Victorian London. His first book is Arrowood, with the sequel to follow in December.

This event is part of Cambridge Festival of Ideas.
