Why we are Crazy about Crime? An evening with crime writer William Shaw
Crime fiction currently outsells every other type of fiction in the UK. Why do we relish delving into the dark side so much?
William Shaw’s The Birdwatcher was longlisted for the Theakston’s Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year and hailed as “a contender for thriller of the year” in The Sun. Elly Griffiths praised it as, ‘an astoundingly good crime novel.’ Salt Lane, also set in Kent, launches a new contemporary series featuring DI Alex Cupidi and has been optioned for TV by Expectation Entertainment. Peter James has called him, “one of the great rising talents of UK crime fiction.” He’s also the author of the Breen and Tozer series, set in late-sixties London. Before becoming a crime writer, William Shaw was an award-winning music journalist and the author of several non-fiction books.
