Three cities, three writers, endless opportunities for crime.

Daniel Sellers writes the DI Lola Harris series, set in Glasgow, a cultural metropolis cut through with dark alleys and vice.

Margaret Murphy’s DC Cassie Rowan series is set in her native Liverpool – once a Capital of Culture, it remains a capital of crime.

Michael Wood’s long-running DCI Matilda Darke series has Sheffield, ‘the city in the countryside’, as its backdrop.

Glasgow, Liverpool, Sheffield. Behind the glittering façade of all three, darkness lurks.

Join Daniel, Margaret and Michael as they discuss the importance of their chosen cities to their stories. How close is the fiction to the reality of life – and crime – in the city? Does a city’s unique sense of place affect what we write? With readings and insights into their personal perspectives on writing crime fiction, they will bring to life ‘their’ cities and the detectives who shed light on the darkness that stalks them.
