We have two absolute powerhouses of crime fiction writing joining us for The Brighton Crime Wave this month . Mark Billingham returns to his #1 bestselling Tom Thorne series bringing us The Murder Book. Of the series, Ian Rankin says “Tom Thorne is one of the most credible and engaging heroes in contemporary crime fiction. Mark Billingham is a master”. Twice winner of the Theakston Crime Novel of the Year Award.

Tim Weaver’s The Blackbird is the latest in his gigantically popular and addictive series featuring missing persons investigator David Raker. It starts with a couple in a car – caught on CCTV smiling and laughing – before their vehicle plunges ninety feet into a ravine. But when the fire crews arrive they fine the car car empty. Tim’s brilliant mysteries explore the real mystery in how people vanish in our hyper-surveillant society. ‘Bliss,’ says Lee Child of his latest.

Our candidate for Crime Wave’s Grilling is someone who’s often been in the audience at Brighton Crime Wave, Graham Bartlett. After his two non-fiction hits, Death Comes Knocking and Babes in the Wood – written with Peter James – we’re thrilled to present his excellent debut fiction novel Bad For Good, a knuckle ride into a dystopian vision of the police in which privatisation reveals a much darker side. “Vicious criminals and dysfunctional police described by a man who knows” says Anthony Horowitz. As Brighton’s former Chief Superintendent of Police, Graham does indeed know!
