7-8pm, Crime Fiction: Nowhere Like London
Mick Herron, William Shaw and Lesley Thomson have all set successful crime series in London. CWA Gold Dagger-winning Mick Herron’s Jackson Lamb series is based at the imaginary Slough House, a dumping ground for failed MI5 agents located near The Barbican. No 1 best-seller Lesley Thomson has a Chiswick-set series that began with The Detective’s Daughter. William Shaw’s Breen and Tozer series revolves around 1960s Marylebone and the embers of swinging London. Val McDermid welcomed the latest, Sympathy for the Devil, as a ‘big treat for fans… and if you’re not a fan yet, why not?’ Chaired by Festival Director Torin Douglas.
Chiswick Library, Duke’s Avenue, W4 2AB, £3, £1.50 for Library members, advance booking required.
