Killer Crime Writing

Thu 23 Nov / Quarterhouse

Lisa Cutts, William Shaw and Julie Wassmer in conversation with Lennox Morrison
Police procedurals, literary crime, dark ‘cosy crime’…Three distinct styles from three popular crime writers in discussion with Lennox Morrison about their novels and the real-life stories that have inspired them.

Lisa Cutts is a full time police detective as well as the award-winning author of the DC Nina Foster series and the East Rise Incident Room crime novels, which are based on her twenty-one years of policing experience. Her latest book is Mercy Killing.

William Shaw writes the popular Breen and Tozer crime series set in the 1960s; the latest, Sympathy for the Devil was recently published to great acclaim. His novel The Birdwatcher and its forthcoming follow-up, Salt Lane, are set in Dungeness.

Julie Wassmer has been a screenwriter for EastEnders and other television dramas. Her crime novels in the Whitstable Pearl Mystery series combine seafood, murder and a multi-tasking heroine in a captivating coastal setting and have just been optioned for TV.
