It’s been ages since we had a crime writing event in London. So congratulations to all the hard-working folk who’ve finally fixed this ridiculous omission with the creation of Capital Crime which will run from September 26th to the 28th at the Connaught Rooms.
It’s a hell of a line up too. Just take a look at the website to see some of the name showing up from around the world. From my work with ITW I know how much graft and hard labour goes into events like this. So kudos all round for the doughty team that put all this together — hats off to you folks.
I’ll be there for a panel on Friday morning. It’s at ten thirty and on the subject of ‘Crime on a Global Scale’ with Vaseem Khan, Leye Adenle, Craig Russell, Abir Mukherjee and Shaun Harris.
Looking forward to it — and a round of applause to the people behind what I’m sure will become an annual fixture on London’s literary calendar.
