About this event

Mark Billingham will be talking to us about his career so far and his latest title Rabbit Hole.

Mark Billingham started his career, 20 years ago, as the new young voice in crime fiction. He brought a fresh, edgy and terrifying twist to the genre and his lead character, Tom Thorne, was every bit as quirky and different a character as his creator. The intervening two decades have seen Billingham grow from a young maverick, pushing the boundaries and challenging the assumptions of crime writing by both the trade and the readers themselves, into the role of statesman of the genre, supporting new writers and confronting his own social conscience through his work.

We all acknowledge that the crime novel can (in the words of Billingham himself) ‘shine a light into some of the darker corners of society’ and the commentary writers like him give to contemporary political and social issues has an important role to play in today’s tumultuous world.

Billingham’s novels have now sold over 6 million copies. He has had 20 Sunday Times bestsellers (every one of his titles) and has spent over 120 weeks in the top ten. Two TV series have been made of Mark’s books – Thorne by Sky starring David Morrissey, and In the Dark by the BBC. A third is currently in development.
