12 January 2011

This show is a summer selection of a couple of interviews with international authors who came visiting in 2010

Scottish Crime writer Val McDermid was in Dunedin recently to promote her latest novel Trick of the Dark. McDermid is internationally renowned for her crime fiction and in particular her Wire in the Blood novels, which have been made into a television series by the BBC. She was the recipient of the 2010 Cartier Diamond Dagger Award of the Crime Writers Association. We talk about her life in crime writing as well as her new novel.

British born, Canadian living crime writer Peter Robinson was in New Zealand recently promoting his new Detective Chief Inspector Banks novel, Bad Boy. I had the opportunity to talk with him about the book, music and his novels getting to television.
