Event description

Description

Crime and detective fiction enjoys astonishing global popularity. The range and depth of the genre is remarkable – from Lee Child to The Girl on the Train, from Val Mcdermid to Murder on the Orient Express. But why do we love mysteries so much?

There’s no one better qualified to help us answer the question than Martin Edwards. He’s the current Chair of the Crime Writers’ Association, and in 2015 he became the eighth President of the Detection Club since 1930, following in the illustrious footsteps of G.K. Chesterton, Dorothy L. Sayers, and Agatha Christie. he’s written eighteen novels, and the multi-award winning The Golden Age of Murder, and is series consultant to the British Library’s bestselling Crime Classics. He recently received the Poirot award for his outstanding contribution to the field.
