Martin Edwards Talk: The Making of a Crime Novel

Jersey Library

Event Overview

A talk by award-winning crime writer Martin Edwards giving an inside view of an attempt to create a breakthrough novel, from original idea to publication. Martin explains how he came up with the idea for Gallows Court, a new novel which Ann Cleeves said will “keep you reading, breathless, until the very last page”. According to Peter James, “Edwards has managed, brilliantly, to combine a Golden Age setting with a pace that is bang up to date. A great sense of the era observed through a cut-throat-sharp eye, every page dripping with brilliant period authenticity.”
